Foxe took the opportunity even then to integrate some martyr narratives from continental Europe into the first edition, especially where their narratives were readily available to him, or had become particularly well-known.
At all events, the passage serves as a notable example of the proceedings of the Inquisition. Foxe could hardly have resisted making something of the potentially emotive and rich material furnished by the Inquisition. Crespin’s sources were undeniably patchy – at one point, Foxe passes an acidic comment on the lack of precision in the record-keeping – but, in some instances, he had managed to acquire first-person narratives of their interrogations, and in others he seems to have had access to transcripts of the process-verbauxthe court records.
It should be pointed out, however, that Gratius approves of the letter and its instructions; Foxe, as he makes very clear, does not. Both sides gained something from the Leipzig diputation. The second reason for the value of these records lies in the systematic manner in which Bishop John Longland investigated heresy in his diocese.
These verses are printed by Foxe. He includes some French-speaking martyrs from the Walloon provinces of Flanders e.
The following extracts from the writings of Jan Hus are taken from the two volume compendium of Hus’s works, edited by Mathias Flacius, Ioannis Hus et Hieronymi Pragensis confessorum Christi historia et monimenta Nuremburg,I, fos.

Luther showed a marked preference for nominalist theologians, such as William of Ockham, over realist theologians such as Aquinas and Scotus. Whatever the truth of this, Hunne had, at a minimum, Lollard librl. Foxe’s notion of the geographical boundaries of the kingdom of France was clearly somewhat defective.
Margaret Aston and Colin Richmond [Stroud, ]pp. The following account of a ‘history of a certen man of the Country wrongfully put to deathe Collected by the saide Ihon Oecolampadius’ was also published by Foxe in his earliest editionpp. The pos interspersed some materials about the political history of Germany in the later s, without intending to be a detailed history of it. Foxe was seeking to situate the events in England within a wider European perspective – his claim here has often been ignored by later commentators.
Catherine of Siena, who was arguably the most e Dominican mystic of the Middle Ages. However, there is some corroboration for Foxe’s account of these persecutions. In the edition, Foxe filled this gap with two additional sources. A Thomas Harding and his wife were listed among those who had abjured in Adrian VI was well aware that clerical corruption, particularly at Rome, kartires Lutheranism. The close family relationships of of many of these accused is also worth observing For instance, Thomas Austy was the son-in-law of Thomas Vincent and Vincent may have been the father-in-law of Richard Hunne as well as of Austy.

The second diet of Nuremberg is not discussed in Foxe, he is merely carelessly repeating Sleidan’s reference to his previous discussion of the diet.
