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.

Facsimile of Foxe s Book of Martyrs 1583

Facsimile of Foxe s Book of Martyrs 1583

His message shaped English religious and political consciousness for centuries to come with enormous consequences, and the book was second only to the vernacular Bible as a formative influence on English language and culture.

Foxe's Actes and Monuments of Matters Most Speciall and Memorable is one of the foundation-stones of English protestant national identity. Over twenty-five years, and in more than 2,500,000 words, Foxe compiled his history of the church in order to demonstrate that protestantism was the true faith. His message shaped English religious and political consciousness for centuries to come with enormous consequences, and the book was second only to the vernacular Bible as a formative influence on English language and culture. The 1583 edition was the last for which Foxe was personally responsible. Assembled from two separate originals, this facsimile on CD-ROM provides the only complete version available. The CD-ROM combines readable and printable images of the 2,200 pages of text and woodcut engravings from the complete edition. The illustrations are displayed as very high resolution facsimiles (400 dots per inch) and there is a searchable transcription of Foxe's own index and calendar which catalogues and links to the text and woodcuts. The CD-ROM comes complete with installation instructions and full on-screen help.

This book was first published in 2006. Second only to the Bible and Book of Common Prayer, John Foxe's Acts and Monuments, known as the Book of Martyrs, was the most influential book published in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The most complex and best-illustrated English book of its time, it recounted in detail the experiences of hundreds of people who were burned alive for their religious beliefs. John N. King offers the most comprehensive investigation yet of the compilation, printing, publication, illustration, and reception of the Book of Martyrs. He charts its reception across different editions by learned and unlearned, sympathetic and antagonistic readers. The many illustrations included here introduce readers to the visual features of early printed books and general printing practices both in England and continental Europe, and enhance this important contribution to early modern literary studies, cultural and religious history, and the history of the Book.

What would you do for the cross of Christ? For two thousand years, Christians have courageously triumphed over beatings, stonings, burnings, wild beasts, and every form of evil to boldly proclaim one truth: the name of Jesus. Voices of the Martyrs AD 33 – Today is their story and your Christian heritage. In the 16th century, English preacher John Foxe created what would later be called the “second most important book in history” after the Bible: Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. With dozens of images, modernized English, and up-to-date accounts, Foxe: Voices of the Martyrs faithfully binds the testimonies of more than 50 of Foxe’s heroes from the Early Church to the Reformation with Christians in the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, and through the twentieth century. More importantly, Foxe: Voices of the Martyrs unites past Christians with believers today. Building on over fifty years of ministry to persecuted Christians, The Voice of the Martyrs organization shares sixty-seven stories of Christians who have stood faithfully to the death since 2000. Their courage in the face of ISIS and the Taliban, brutal dictatorships, and government crackdowns will inspire you to boldness and remind you that the same Spirit of Christ Who strengthened Stephen, Peter, and Paul is at work in you today.
