Images from the John Foxe"s Acts and Monuments (the "Book of Martyrs"), Ninth Edition (1684)

Contributing Institution
  • John Denley, fully clothed and chained to the stake, leans forward with arms extended toward a solider who is about to throw a bundle of faggots into the fire. Four other soldiers stand nearby and appear to be in conversation with each other rather than watching Denley's burning. Four ecclesiastical commissioners stand in the foreground of the image and appear to be administering this martyrdom and also instructing the soldier to throw the bundle of faggots. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/74, which appears in each of the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. JPEG file (521 KB).
