Thomas Cranmer burns at the stake (1)

Contributing Institution
  • Cranmer stands in a fire on a small platform. He thrusts his right hand into the blaze in order to punish the hand that temporarily recanted his Protestant belief prior to his execution. A worker tends the fire on Cranmer's left, while a crowd of soldiers and others observes from a distance. Cranmer's execution occurs outside Oxford.
