    Description: John Hooper, Bishop of Gloucester, burning at the stake. The caption of the image indicates that this martyrdom took place on February 9, 1555. In this illustration, Hooper stands naked, wrapped only in a loincloth and tied to the stake by a band around his waist. With his right hand draped across his chest he cries, "Lord Iesus [Jesus] receive my Soule [Soul]." Hooper is surrounded by several civilians, both men and women, who are weeping and pleading for his life, and by soldiers who are administering the martyrdom and an official on a horse who is supervising. A dark cloud hovers above Hooper while the flames rage at his feet. Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11222/25 and 11223/61, which appear in all four of the early English editions (1563, 1570, 1576, 1583). JPEG file (35.9 KB).

    Description: Flesh melts away from the nearly consumed Hooper ("Lord Iesu receiue my soul" ["Lord Jesus receive my soul"]), who burns in flames. A worker tends the fire, and a richly dressed man supervises the execution from horseback. A semicircle of soldiers and civilians surrounds the scene. Among these observers, a woman weeps and a man crosses his hands over his chest. The skeletal remains of Hooper's limbs are visible in the fire. This woodcut appears in the first through fourth editions (1563, 1570, 1576, and 1583). Luborsky and Ingram 11222/25, 11223/61. JPEG file (1.09 MB).
