    One thought on “Bloody Mary's Martyrs”

    1. The information was good The author s style of writing leaves much to be desired It was kind of like eating a good tasting fish that is full of bones.

    2. This book read like a high school book report of Foxe s Book of Martyrs By the end, I was just reading it so that I could warn others There was little perspective, just listing after listing of who died in the fires and vignettes of things they did before they died.It just dronedondondonLike I get it, they died, but how about what was going on around this, how about some perspective Some historical analysis Don t read.

    3. Having looked at the author s list of other books and the bibliography in this, I was in expectation that he would be eminently reliable and do some original research, e.g go to the traditional places of execution, take new photographs, show photos of any personal effects that some martyrs like Cranmer had which might still exist Show us photos of the books by martyr authors, e.g an interesting copy of Latimer s Fruitfull Sermons Incorporate new research, make experiments He did nothing Instead [...]

    4. I started this book but could not finish it While fascinated with this period of English history and wanting to understand Blood Mary , I could not read the explicit details of the deaths of the martyrs What horrors happen in the name of religion and are remembered for centuries Do not read this book at bedtime or if you have a sensitive heart.

    5. Mostly balanced view of the religious issues of the era A true tale of man s inhumanity to man Sad that this was winked at in the end But if religion is simply an exercise in avoiding persecution or staying on the right side of the powers that be, then the waffling is understandable though disappointing Truly disheartened by the truths shared about John Knox.

    6. Some interesting history, mainly focused on the religious upheaval in England during the reign of the Tudors However, there are some sloppy mistakes and at times it is just a listing of those who were burned.
