Description
  • Anne Albright, Joane Catmer, John Lomas, Agnes Snoth, and Joane Sole are chained together to two stakes at Canterbury. They are surrounded by faggots and engulfed by very large flames. A small man in the foreground of the image is tending the pyre while a large crowd gathers around the burning martyrs. Several men on horses appear to the right of the image while the man standing to the left of the image appears to be administering the martyrdom. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/86, which appears in each of the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. JPEG file (547 KB).
