Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: “The order and manner of the burning of the constant Martyr of Christ, John Lambert.” John Lambert, naked and chained to a stake, stands with both arms outstretched upward and says "None but Christ, none but Christ." Men from either side of Lambert poke the fire while a richly dressed man sits and watches on horseback and a crowd of clergy and soldiers stand nearby. Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11222/19 and 11223/50, which appear in all four early English editions (1563, 1570, 1576, 1583). JPEG file (460 KB).
Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: While executioners prod him from either side, Lambert ("None but Christ, none but Christ") burns at the stake. A richly dressed man supervises the execution from horseback, and alarmed observers and others stand by. Lambert perishes following his conviction on charges that he denied the real presence of Christ in the eucharist. King Henry VIII himself presided over Lambert's trial, which produced embarrassment among Protestants who wanted to claim King Henry as a champion for the Protestant faith. This woodcut appears in the first through fourth editions (1563, 1570, 1576, and 1583). Luborsky and Ingram 11222/19, 11223/50. JPEG file (1.02 MB).
