Magdalen Library Talk

Wednesday 27 February, 5.30pm

Dr Tom Freeman will talk about how one of the most influential publications ever, John Foxe’s “Actes and Monuments” or “Book of Martyrs,” came into being. There will be a chance to examine close up the three editions owned by Magdalen College: the first two editions (1563 and 1570), which were presented to the College by Foxe himself, as well as the copiously illustrated edition of 1631, which the College recently acquired.

The exhibition of early medical books continues in the Old Library too, and will be available for viewing.
