rightly vnderstand, & earnestly consider, and pōder in our mindes, neither would we so excessiuely forgette our selues in time of our prosperity geuen vs of God: nor yet so impatiētly be troubled, as we are in time of our aduersity, and all because either we heare not, or els we pōder not the terrible crosses which the Lord layeth vpon our other brethren abroad in other nations, as by this present story here prefixed may appeare.

Commentary  *  Close
Ottoman dominions

This description of the extent of the Ottoman empire may seem thegreatest disgression in Foxe's apparently discursive account of the Turks. But it serves one important purpose: to demonstrate, if not magnify, the power and extent of the Ottoman empire. This supports Foxe's identification of the Ottomans as a diabolical power, if not, indeed, Antichrist itself. Foxe's emphasis on how the Turks(and other Moslems) overran formerly Christian countries also supports his interpre-tation of the 'defections' mentioned in 2 Thess. 2 as the conversion of Christians toIslam, which further reinforces the identification of the Ottomans as Antichrist.

as I haue shewed hitherto what tyranny hath bene vsed of the Turkes agaynst Christes people, so to declare likewise, how far this tyranny of the Turkes hath extended and spread it selfe, describing as in a table, to the Christē Reader, what landes, countryes and kingdomes the Turkes haue wonne, and got from Christendome, to the intent that when Christen princes shal behold the greatnes of the Turks dominions spread almost through al the world, and how litle a part of Christianity remayneth behinde, they may thereby vnderstand the better, howe it is time now for them to bestyrre them, if euer they thinke to do any good in Gods Church.And therefore to make a cōpendious draught as in a briefe table, of such countryes, kingdomes, dominions, gott from vs by the Turkes, we will first beginne with Asia, describing what tractes, countryes, cityes and Churches, the Turke hath surprised, and violently pluckt away from the society of Christian dominions, taking onely suche, as be most principall, and chiefely them that be in Scripture conteyned, for that it were to long to discourse all and singular such places by name, as the Turke hath vnder hys subiection.

The world being deuided commonly into three parts, Asia, Africa, and Europa, 

Commentary  *  Close

Foxe, like many European scholars of his era, considered the Americasas part of Asia, particularly as this conformed to the ancient division of the world intothree continents.

Asia is counted to be the greatest in compas, conteining as much as both the other, and is deuided into 2. portions, the one called Asia Maior: the other called Asia minor. And although the Empery of the Turke extendeth vnto them both: yet especially his dominion standeth in the other Asia, which is called Asia Minor, which reacheth from the coastes of Europa, vnto Armenia Maior, beyond the riuer Euphrates, and comprehendeth these regions and Cityes vnder written.
