Martyrdom of Ridley and Latimer, 1555

Nicholas Ridley (1500 - October 16, 1555) was an English Bishop of London. he was burned at the stake, as one of the Oxford Martyrs, during the Marian Persecutions, for his teachings and his support of Lady Jane Grey. Hugh Latimer (1487 - October 16, 1555) was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, and Bishop of Worcester before the Reformation, and later Church of England chaplain to King Edward VI. In 1555 under Queen Mary he was burned at the stake, becoming one of the three Oxford Martyrs of Anglicanism. Ridley burned extremely slowly and suffered a great deal. His brother-in-law foolishly put more faggots on the pyre, in order to speed his death, while in fact they caused only Ridley's lower parts to burn. Latimer is supposed to have said to Ridley, "Be of good comfort, and play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
