Acts and monuments of matters most special and memorable, happening in the church, with an universal history of the same. Wherein is set forth at large, the whole race and course of the church, from the primitive age to these later times of ours, with the bloody times, horrible troubles, and great persecutions against the true martyrs of Christ, sought and wrought as well by heathen emperors, as now lately practised by Romish prelates, especially in this realm of England and Scotland. Now again, as it was recognized, perused, and recommended to the studious reader, by the author, Mr. John Fox. Whereunto are annexed certain additions of like persecutions which have happened in these later times. To which also is added the life of the author both in Latine and English.
