Book of English Martyrs by E. M. Wilmot-Buxton
This fascinating book recounts the stories of English martyrs persecuted during the 16th century reformation. It includes the well-known stories of More, Fisher, Campion, and Margaret of Clitherow, but also the stories such as the Martyrs of York, the victims of the Northern Rising, and lesser known martyrs such as Ralph Sherwood and Philip Arundel. Most valuably, it tells the story of the vicious, villianous activities of the chief spies and persecutors of English Catholics. The stories of the sadistic tormentors of English Catholics,—such as Richard Topcliffe, Francis Walsingham, and George Eliot—should be as well known as that of Torquemada or the Duke of Alba.
