Originally published in 1554, this is an account of Christian martyrs throughout Western history but emphasizing the sufferings of English Protestants and proto-Protestants from the fourteenth century through the reign of Mary I. Widely owned and read by English Puritans, the book helped mould British popular opinion about the Catholic Church for several centuries. This is not the complete original version of the book. This 1926 edition of Foxe's Book of Martyrs was abridged by William Byron Forbush, and is much shorter than Foxe's original version which contained over 1800 folio pages.
