Publikace: FOXE´S BOOK OF MARTYRS: Select Narrative (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - FOXE, J.. Foxe's hugely influential Book of Martyrs is a vast record of the

martyrdom suffered by hundreds of Protestants, burnt alive for

their beliefs during the reign of Mary I. This selection brings

together some of the most famous and affecting narratives to

provide a sensational window into early modern English history. The

most accurate and readable abridgement available, this modernized

edition is based on a new transcription of the last edition

overseen by John Foxe. It includes a full introduction to Foxe and

his times, the religious conflicts, and the nature of

martyrological narratives. Includes 21 of the original woodcut

illustrations depicting martyrs at the stake and being tortured.

Includes the accounts of the deaths of Latimer, Ridley, and Cranmer

as well as graphic stories of the hunting, capture, torture and

deaths for heresy of ordinary men and women. Includes glossaries of

people, places, and words, a general index, and notes explaining

allusions and identifying scriptural quotations. 'Be of good

comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man: we shall this day light

such a candle by God's grace in England, as, I trust, shall never

be put out.' Hugh Latimer's famous words of consolation to Nicholas

Ridley as they are both about to be burnt alive for heresy come

from John Foxe's magisterial Acts and Monuments, popularly known as

the Book of Martyrs. This vast collection of unforgettable accounts

of religious persecution exerted as great an influence on early

modern England and New England as the Bible and the Book of Common

Prayer. It contains many stirring stories of the apprehension,

interrogation, imprisonment, and execution of alleged heretics. The

narratives not only attest to the fortitude of individuals who

suffered for their faith not many years before the birth of

Shakespeare, but they also constitute exciting tales filled with

graphic details and verbal wit. This modernized selection also

includes some of the famous woodcuts that illustrated the original

text, as well as providing a comprehensive introduction to Foxe's

life and times and the martyrology narrative. ABOUT THE SERIES: For

over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the

widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable

volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the

most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features,

including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful

notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further

study, and much more. Readership: General readers with an interest
