Woukd love to see if Logos can join venture with https://www.johnfoxe.org/ to digitalise all four original edition of Foxe's Book of Martyrs, and provide a Morden English version of the final edition.

Also the latest abridged version from Kregel is an excellent work, with full color pictures and commentary.

Please can we have the full version, it is a foundational English document of great importance.

Yes

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I assume the version currently in Logos is abridged/and or modernised?

Most of the modern English version are in the abridged form, the old English original of the last edition is about 4000 pages long.

logos does not currently sell the unabridged version.

many martyrs are omitted, which is scandalous.

As religious liberty continues to erode around the world, and is on the brink of being a total loss in place it once reigned supreme and untouchable (the USA), a complete edition of Foxe (in either the 1947 printing or a modernized version freshly derived from the original) seems like a no-brainer. To only have an abridged version in Logos is almost as crazy and unthinkable as only having a partial lexicon with the top 10% most commonly used original language words. Crying

BUMP!!! Yes Yes Yes
