John Foxe (1516/17[1] – 18 April 1587) adalah seorang sejarawan dan martirologis asal Inggris, pengarang Actes and Monuments (lebih dikenal sebagai Foxe's Book of Martyrs), sebuah catatan para martir Kristen sepanjang sejarah Barat, namun menekankan penindasan umat Protestan Inggris dan proto-Protestan dari abad ke-14 sampai masa pemerintahan Mary I. Banyak dimiliki dan dibaca oleh Puritan Inggris, buku tersebut membantu mempengaruhi opini populer Inggris tentang Gereja Katolik selama beberapa abad.[2]

Catatan[sunting | sunting sumber]

  1. ^ "The patent of arms granted in 1590 to the family of John Foxe, and first printed by Maitland from a copy of 1692 in the college of arms, gives his birth year as 1516, and the date may have been supplied by [his own son] Samuel. But Samuel is very inaccurate in such matters; his diary misdates important happenings in his own life; and [his other son] Simeon's statement is too precise to be disregarded." Mozley, 12.
  2. ^ William Haller, Foxe's First Book of Martyrs and the Elect Nation (London: Jonathan Cape, 1963) argues that the Acts and Monuments is a complex book, portraying the English church as a body of elect people whose history of suffering and dedication to the faith echo the history of Israel in the Old Testament.
