John Foxe (1516-1587) es reconocido como uno de los más importantes historiadores cristianos. Exilado por las persecuciones habidas en Inglaterra durante el reinado de María la Sanguinaria, a su regreso, después de la muerte de la reina, publicó su famoso Libro de los mártires, una obra que causó tal impacto en la sociedad inglesa de la época, que, hasta la aparición de El peregrino de Bunyan en 1678, los puritanos no tenían otra lectura que la Biblia y el Libro de los mártires. Muchos autores, como Douglas Campbell y Henry Morley, creen que sirvió para moldear el carácter nacional y el espíritu de libertad en América, calificándolo como «un monumento que marca el creciente poder de un deseo de libertad espiritual, de desafío a todas aquellas formas que apagan la conciencia y que encadenan el pensamiento». El libro –ampliado después de la muerte de Foxe– es un testimonio histórico de las persecuciones desencadenadas contra los verdaderos cristianos. La edición española presenta una recopilación completa de la vida y testimonio de los más insignes mártires primitivos y de los mártires protestantes, desde los tiempos de los apóstoles hasta las misiones de finales del siglo XIX.

Foxe's Book of Martyrs

John Foxe (1516-1587) is recognized as one of the most important Christian historians. Exiled due to the persecutions in England during the reign of Mary the Bloody, upon his return after the queen's death, he published his famous Book of Martyrs, a work that caused such an impact on English society at the time that it Until the appearance of Bunyan's Pilgrim in 1678, the Puritans had no other reading than the Bible and the Book of Martyrs. Many authors, such as Douglas Campbell and Henry Morley, believe that it served to shape the national character and the spirit of liberty in America, calling it "a monument marking the growing power of a desire for spiritual liberty, for defiance of all those forms that they extinguish the conscience and that chain the thought». The book – enlarged after Foxe's death – is a historical testimony of the persecutions unleashed against true Christians. The Spanish edition presents a complete compilation of the life and testimony of the most famous primitive martyrs and Protestant martyrs, from the times of the apostles to the missions of the late 19th century.
