John Foxe's The Acts and Monuments Online

Scholars of British history and culture may enjoy The Acts and Monuments Online (TAMO). After nearly twenty years of work, the team behind this digital project produced a definitive edition of what is commonly known as John Foxe's Book of Martyrs, originally published in 1563. Here, readers will find unabridged texts of all four editions (with marginalia) that were published in Foxe's lifetime, as well as transcriptions in modern English "that keep as close as possible to the original texts." This resource allows keyword searches and provides page indices for each edition, and it also offers facsimiles of all the woodcut illustrations and translations of "significant passages in Latin and Greek." Additionally, TAMO provides an extensive Critical Apparatus, which contains commentaries on the texts, glosses, and woodcuts, textual transpositions and variations, a lengthy biographical essay on Foxe, and more. Begun in 1992 and completed in 2011, TAMO is a project of the Digital Humanities Institute at the University of Sheffield and was directed by Mark Greengrass, Professor Emeritus of Early Modern History at the University of Sheffield, and the late David Loades, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Wales.
