The account of Anne Askew from Foxe's Book of Martyrs--
Then Wriotheseley, lord chancellor, offered Anne Askew the king's pardon if she would recant; who made this answer, that she came not thither to deny her Lord and Master. And thus the good Anne Askew, being compassed in with flames of fire, as a blessed sacrifice unto God, slept in the Lord, A.D. 1546, leaving behind her a singular example of Christian constancy for all men to follow.
|Significance||Protestant martyr under Henry VIII. She was convicted of heresy for her denial of transubstantiation. She was burned alive on July 16, 1546.|
