Product Description


This CD-ROM is a major step in the publication programme of the John Foxe Project which is doing so much to aid understanding and discussion of one of the most important books published in the sixteenth century. Journal of Ecclesiastical History The value of Foxe's text to historians and theologians is undiminished ... The Book of Martyrs is also invaluable both as a mirror to the times in which it was written and rewritten, and as one of the formative documents of Puritan England. Such considerations led to the recent establishment of the British Academy's John Foxe project .. this CD-ROM is one of the project's interim products ... Foxe's own index has been equipped with a search engine and hyperlinks, so that limited searches for major topics or key individuals can be carried out ... It is simply constructed and easy to use for technophobes. Journal of Theological Studies --This text refers to an alternate CD-ROM edition.
