Commentary  *  Close
Martyrdoms of Thomas Whittle, Bartlett Greene et al.

There is an account of Thomas Whittle's background, arrest, of his being brought before Gardiner and his being sent to Bonner in the Rerum. This is followed by a description of how Whittle, by threats and by flattery, was induced to recant and his retraction of his recantation, Bonner's fury at this and Whittle's condemnation (Rerum, pp. 632-33).

[Back to Top]

The account of Whittle's background, arrest, and his being sent to Gardiner and Bonner was reprinted in the 1563 edition. But Foxe replaced the rest of the Rerum account with new material, almost entirely derived from Bonner's official records, although the condemnation of Whittle may well be partly based on an eyewitness account. This narrative remained unchanged in subsequent editions.

THe Catholike prelates of the Popes band beyng as yet not satisfied with this their one yeres bloudy murderyng of the reuerend, lerned, & principal members of Christes church, (whereof there were now very few, which either were not consumed by most cruel fire, or els for the auoidyng of their popish rage, compelled to flee their natural country) continued still this next yere also, which was an. 1556. in no lesse crueltie towards the more simple & inferior sort of people (I meane in degree, though, God be praysed, not in stedfastnes) hauing yet sometimes amōgst them such as were both learned and of good estimation, as in continuance of this history shall appeare.
