Description
  • John Stillman, fully clothed and chained by the waist and neck to the stake, stands with hands clasped and outstretched toward the sky. Two men kneel in the front of the scene with their arms outstretched in supplication. Other men, who appear to be soldiers, stand in the background of the image. Stillman's martyrdom is also depicted in the second early English edition (1570) with Luborsky and Ingram 11223/19, which is used nine times in the second edition to represent the martyrdom of nine different men. However, in this edition, Stillman's martyrdom is a revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/16. JPEG file (291 KB).
