Martyrs of Henry VIII

Repression, Defiance, Sacrifice

John Matusiak

Elizabeth Barton was a young Benedictine nun, a visionary and an outspoken critic of Henry VIII; in 1534 she was executed at Tyburn. A year later, Sebastian Newdigate, a Cathusian monk at Charterhouse, was hanged, drawn and quartered; and that same year, Bishop John Fisher was beheaded on Tower Hill. John Matusiak’s study of these steadfast Catholics examines the ‘stakes and allegiances, passions and principles’ and the underlying events and processes that brought them to martyrdom.
