"After the 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."

Foxe's Book of Martyrs is a history of the lives, sufferings and deaths of the Early Christians and Protestant Martyrs.
