Book Description

May 7 2001
Foxe's Actes and Monuments was a foundation stone of English protestant nationalism. Over twenty-five years, and in more than 2,500,000 words, Foxe put together his history of the church (mainly but not exclusively the church in England), in order to demonstrate that protestantism was the true faith. His message shaped English religious and political consciousness for centuries to come, with enormous consequences. And the book was second only to the vernacular Bible as a formative influence on English language and culture. However, access to satisfactory versions of this crucial work has been almost impossible; the great nineteenth-century editions are textual jumbles. The 1583 edition was the last for which Foxe was personally responsible, but only about forty original copies survive and none is perfect; microfilm copies have reflected or even aggravated these omissions and imperfections. Assembled from two originals, this facsimile on CD-ROM provides the only perfect and complete version available. The title is a combination of the 2,200 pages of text and woodcuts from the complete edition, as well as a searchable transcription of Foxe's own index for each of the pages. This enables easy searching of the edition as well as providing a complete table of contents.

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.
