Review quote

For those readers unacquainted with sixteenth century English prose the text remains difficult to read, but it repays the effort. ...this will prove very useful for seminar studies in Tudor Reformation history as a basic as well as unusually gripping text. * Archive for Reformation History *show more

Back cover copy

This volume includes two texts: the first edition of Askew's Examinations with Bale's Elucidation; and Foxe's edition, an uninterrupted version of her work. The latest addition to the Women Writers in English series, this book will have strong appeal for scholars and students of English Renaissance literature, Reformation history, and women's history.show more
