The cover of ohn Foxe; The Book of Martyrs by David Loades

In 1571 Convocation decreed that the Acts and Monuments of John Foxe should be placed in every cathedral church and the houses of cathedral clergy. Many parishes were quick to follow. Cecil also arranged for it to be placed in every chamber at court. It became available to anyone who could read. The Acts and Monuments thus entered the culture of England in a way few other works have ever done. Only the English Bible has exercised a comparable influence. The Acts and Monuments is often more popularly known as Foxe's Book of Martyrs.
