Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: Master Robert Glover and Cornelius Bongey are chained to one stake at Coventry. Both men appear to be dressed in uniform and each has an arm draped around the other and the opposite arm raised toward the sky. They appear to be looking at each other while a crowd of soldiers surrounds them and three of the soldiers stoke the fire. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/79, which appears in each of the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. JPEG file (513 KB).
Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: William White, a priest and Lollard heretic, is clothed and, with his arms outstretched to the left, stands chained to a stake which is surrounded by bundles of faggots. Four kneeling men have their arms reaching toward him, perhaps in supplication or in praise. Soldiers stand nearby with weapons. This is very similar to the engraving used to depict the martyrdom of William Tailor [Taylor], yet it is a different revision of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/16. JPEG file (494 KB).
Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: William Sawtre, a priest, is fully-clothed and with arms outstretched and chained to a stake. Two men stoke the fire surrounding him. The crowd looking on includes a man on horseback, a man clothed in ecclesiastical garb, many soldiers, other men, and at least one woman. This image may be a redesign of Luborsky and Ingram 11222/5 and 11223/5, which portray an unnamed martyr alone chained to a post amidst flames, saying “Jesu haue mercy [Jesus have mercy]."
