Great book, about people who were willing to be tortured to stay in God's will. Very inspiring, I hope to meet everyone of these people after I die. Excellent naration. Recommended :)

This is a quality recording of the Book of Martyrs. It is a hard story to listen to when considering the price that these folks paid to keep faith with Christ. I need to listen again and again

The attitudes of the Protestant and Anglican churches of post-Reformation Europe are clear in this comprehensive account of the persecutions of dissenters from the Catholic Church, first published in the 16th century when all was still raw and evolving.
There could be no question of an impartial account, unless an extraterrestrial historian had visited.
There are, of course, Catholic martyrologies of similar date, presenting a diametrically opposed version of events!
The interest is, in both cases, in understanding the mindset of that era in the words of that time - it’s generally not “fake news” in the case of a scholar like Foxe, or his Catholic counterparts, though that did exist, but a question of viewpoint and a large degree of selectivity - rather like the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian today.
As a Presbyterian turned Catholic, I tend to see both sides- not the brutality or intolerance, but the courage in affirming one’s faith.
