Foxe's Book of Martyrs: Select Narratives

by John Foxe, edited by John N. King

I usually disdain reading abridged classics, but in this case I was grateful. The original work is a multi-volume work tracing the history of Christian martyrdom. Professor King has selected 29 of the accounts, pretty much covering the years of Queen Mary, 1553-1558. It's both gruesome and inspirational.
