Foxe's Book of Martyrs -- 211. ONE ROGERS, A MARTYR, BURNED IN NORFOLK.

211. ONE ROGERS, A MARTYR, BURNED IN NORFOLK.

            Like as Winchester and other bishops did set on King Henry against Anne Askew and her fellow martyrs, so Dr. Repse, bishop of Norwich, did incite no less the old duke of Norfolk against one Rogers in the county of Norfolk; who, much about the same year and time, was there condemned and suffered martyrdom for the six articles. After which time it was not long, but within a half year, both the king himself and the duke's house decayed: albeit, the duke's house, by God's grace, recovered again afterwards, and he himself converted to more moderation in this kind of dealing.
