    Description: Thirteen martyrs burn at Stratford the Bowe, near London. As the caption indicates, only eleven of the martyrs are actually chained to the stake while two of the women enter the fire untied. The martyrs are tied to three separate stakes and are either clasping their hands in prayer or are extending their arms outward toward the crowd below them. A large crowd of both civilians and soldiers surrounds the martyrdom. The crowd appears to be rowdy and sympathetic to the martyrs as a soldier on horseback attempts to control the crowd and keep them at bay. Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram11222/45 and 11223/92, which appearin all four early English editions (1563, 1570, 1576, 1583). JPEG file (521 KB).

    Description: Surrounded by faggots, eleven martyrs stand back to back against three stakes. Two women stand untied among them. Some martyrs gesture in prayer, and others extend their arms outward from their bodies. Workers prepare the pyre, and a soldier attempts to keep an active crowd, some of whom observe from behind a ledge, at bay. A man on horseback supervises the execution, which transpires at Stratford the Bowe near London. This woodcut appears in the first through fourth editions (1563, 1570, 1576, and 1583). Luborsky and Ingram 11222/45, 11223/92. JPEG file (995 KB).
