This book by John Foxe (1517-1587) is beyond doubt one of the great Christian classics in English (or any other language, for that matter).  “After the Holy Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs.  Even in our 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.”
