Catalogue Note

Edmund Bonner was Bishop of London from during the reign of Mary I of England. He was dubbed ‘Bloody Bonner’ by his enemies for his persecution of Protestants, beginning in 1555. John Foxe wrote of Bonner, "This cannibal in three years space three hundred martyrs slew / They were his food, he loved so blood, he sparèd none he knew."
