Saint John Almond And The Society Of His Time

£4.99

Product description

Perhaps one of the lesser-known Forty Martyrs of England and Wales, Saint John Almond lived in precarious times, when your religion was not just a matter of choice, but a matter of life and death. This was the time of the Spanish Armada, the Gunpowder Plot, the Golden Age of Elizabeth I - a world where Shakespeare's words filled the theatres and many traitors swung at Tyburn.

This broad historical study explores the key events of John Almond's life and looks at them in a historical context alongside key events of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. As well as providing a sound basis for any study of these times, this study contains a thorough examination of the events leading up to John Almond's martyrdom - his imprisonment in Newgate, judgment in front of a biased bench and final public execution at Tyburn - and offers a starting point for anyone interested in this era or the saints that lived through it.
