Excerpt from Memorials of the English Martyrs

In former ages, it was a common custom to go on pilgrimage to places hallowed by the association connected with them, where wonders had been wrought, where men had lived in high repute for sanctity, or died as victims to unjust and cruel persecutions. Such places are still to be found, and are visited to this day. To many of them legends, at once fabulous and absurd, are attached: and those who visit them are commonly led to do so in the blindness of an ill-directed faith, and the credulity of a dark superstition.

I call upon my reader to accompany me upon a pilgrimage of a very different character. I have determined to go, as it were, on pilgrimage to places where martyrs to the truth as it is in Jesus, have left the record of their sufferings or of their death.
