John Foxe's The Acts and Monuments Online

Description: 

John Foxe's The Acts and Monuments Online, appearing online and unabridged after a 15-year endeavour, has been a force of change in our contemporary understanding on protestant martyrology. This long-standing collaborative project "evolved in response to three major components: technical developments in the elaboration, delivery and conservation of electronic materials online, our development knowledge of Foxe's text and his methods of working, and different ways of approaching the annotation of a text which itself differs in its nature, and how much Foxe chose to alter it in the different editions prepared during his lifetime". A product of both technological innovations and a deepening understanding of Foxe's text, this comprehensive edition is an incredible resource.
