AdminHistoryThe account, which is written in a contemporary secretary hand, differs slightly from that printed in Foxe's Acts and monuments. It was formerly in the Bertie Papers and perhaps belonged to the Protestant Richard Bertie, a long-standing friend of Foxe, who was in exile at the time of Cranmer's death. It may be one of the accounts of this event circulating on the continent when Foxe was collecting materials. Sold at Sotheby's 23 June 1970 (lot 316).
AcquisitionPurchased, 1984.
