John Foxe Bibliography | A
by Matthew Phillpott

This bibliography contains the works referenced in the textual commentaries and biographical entries prepared for this edition. It therefore contains texts and references directly related to the study of John Foxe and the Acts and Monuments up to and inclusive of the year 2008. It does NOT contain the bibliography from the prefatory essays that are also part of this project. Neither does it contain a comprehensive list of Foxe's own sources. It should be noted that for pre-twentieth-century entries only author, title (sometimes reduced) and date are given. Thereafter full titles and location of publication are also provided. Where square brackets have been used this means that the date is approximate. Works without identified author appear under [anon.] by default. Multiple works by the same author are ordered in order of date of publication.
