“Timothy was the celebrated disciple of St. Paul, and bishop of Ephesus, where he zealously governed the Church until a.d. 97. At this period, as the pagans were about to celebrate a feast called Catagogion, Timothy, meeting the procession, severely reproved them for their ridiculous idolatry, which so exasperated the people that they fell upon him with their clubs, and beat him in so dreadful a manner that he expired of the bruises two days later.” (source)

“When Wickliffe recovered, he set about a most important work, the translation of the Bible into English.” (source)

“Dionysius, the Areopagite, was an Athenian by birth, and educated in all the useful and ornamental literature of Greece. He then travelled to Egypt to study astronomy, and made very particular observations on the great and supernatural eclipse, which happened at the time of our Savior’s crucifixion.” (source)

“Mr. Latimer to say: ‘Be of good cheer, Ridley; and play the man. We shall this day, by God’s grace, light up such a candle in England, as I trust, will never be put out.’” (source)

John Foxe (1516–1587) was an English historian and martyrologist. In 1531, he joined the Reformers and acted as tutor to the children of the recently beheaded Earl of Surrey. He was educated at Brasnose College, Oxford, in 1532 and became a probationer fellow of Magdalen College in 1538. In 1545, Foxe resigned his fellowship at the University because of Protestant beliefs and became a tutor for the Lucy family in Warwickshire. He was ordained deacon by Bishop Nicholas Ridley in 1550 and became the first to preach Protestantism at Reigate in 1551. In 1553, when Mary I becomes Queen of England, he flees to the Continent and then returns to England in 1559. He was ordained by Grindal, bishop of London, as an Anglican priest in 1560. Foxe died at the age of 71 and was interred at St. Giles, Cripplegate, in 1587.

    As much as I love the book, it is completely full of bugs in my Logos program. Not readable. I told them about how messed up it was months ago but still not fixed. After upgrading to version 6, it's MUCH worse!!
