Author: John Foxe
"An Edition for the People", Prepared by: W. Grinton Berry, M.A.
"After the Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our own time, it is still a living force. It is more than a record of persecution. It is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, as well as a source of edification."
-James Miller Dodds, "English Prose"
"When one recollects that until the appearance of the Pilgrim's Progress, the common people had almost no other reading matter except the bible and Foxe's Book of Martyrs, we can understand the deep impression that this book produced; and how it served to mold the national character.
Those who could read for themselves learned the full details of all the atrocities performed on the Protestant Reformers; the illiterate could see the rude illustrations of the various instruments of torture, the rack, the gridiron, the boiling oil, and then the holy ones breathing out their souls amid the flames.
Take a people just awakening to a new intellectual and religious life; let several generations of them from childhood to old age, pore over such a book, and its stories become traditions as individual and almost as potent as songs and customs on a nation's life."
-Douglas Campbell, "The Puritan in Holland, England and America" ________________________________
