Description
This examination of the portrayal of Protestant women in John Foxe's Book of Martyrs shows how they resisted not just the authority of ecclesiastically and politically powerful men, but also their husbands by chastising them, disobeying them and even leaving them altogether. Under his pen, Foxe’s heroic women challenge the foundations of Tudor social and political order, offering a model of resistance to anti-christian rule.
