About Author

John Foxe

Actes and Monuments, often known as Foxe's Book of Martyrs, was written by English historian and martyrologist John Foxe (1516/1517 - 18 April 1587). His writings detail the hardships of Christians throughout Western history, but especially those of English Protestants. The book, which was extensively read and held by English Puritans, had a significant role in shaping British attitudes against the Catholic Church for several generations. Foxe was born into a rather well-known family in Boston, Lincolnshire, England. He appears to have been an uncommonly studious and devout child. In July 1538, he was made a probationer fellow, then in July 1539, a full fellow. Foxe left his college in 1545 after converting to Protestantism and adopting views that Henry VIII's Church of England forbade. In Frankfurt, he became embroiled in a strident religious debate, which resulted in his exile from the city. He penned a Latin history of the persecutions of Christians, which served as the basis for his Acts and Monuments. Foxe was buried at St. Giles' in Cripplegate after dying on April 18, 1587.
