    Description: Thomas Benet, fully clothed and with a cap on his head, stands chained to a stake which is elevated above the crowd of civilians and soldiers. One of the men in front of him is pointing a long smoldering taper toward his face; Benet seems to be blowing on the taper, causing a cloud of smoke. In earlier editions this martyrdom is illustrated by Luborsky and Ingram 11223/19, which appears in the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. However, only in the second early English edition is this woodcut used to depict Benet specifically. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/14, but differs from the revision used to illustrate "The burning of John Castellane." JPEG file (398 KB).
