It considers such muted terms a reversion to a more simple and cautious doctrine which emphasises empowerment ( subsidiarity) to all members and components of the church.

Although the so-called "Marian Persecutions" began with four clergymen, relics of Edwardian England's Protestantism, [2] :p.196 Foxe's Book of Martyrs offers an account of the executions, which extended well beyond the anticipated targets – high-level clergy. Tradesmen were also burned, as well as married men and women, sometimes in unison, "youths" and at least one couple was burned alive with their daughter. [2] :p.196 The figure of 300 victims of the Marian Persecutions was given by Foxe [6] and later by Thomas Brice in his poem, "The Regester".

Following beatifications between 1886 and 1929, there were already numerous martyrs from England and Wales recognised with the rank of Blessed. The bishops of the province identified a list of 40 further names; reasons given for the choice of those particular names include a spread of social status, religious rank, geographical spread and the pre-existence of popular devotion. The list of names was submitted to Rome in December 1960. In the case of a martyr, a miracle is not required. For a martyr, the Pope has only to make a declaration of martyrdom, which is a certification that the Venerable died voluntarily as a witness of the Catholic faith or in an act of heroic charity for others.Gaelic scribe-priest known only from the 9th-century work of a monk named Æthelwulf, De Abbatibus [37] Roger Ashton, soldier, 23 June 1592 – assisted Sir William Stanley in the surrender of Deventer to Spain Anne Line née Higham (c. 1565–1601), married laywoman of the Diocese of Brentwood (Essex – London, England) Richard Smith is said to have died in prison (day unknown) September, Lowlar's Tower/Lollard's Tower, Lambeth Palace, London in 'the Regester', but is described as 'non-existent' in South Saxon, ethnically English and either from or strongly associated with the South Saxon region of early medieval England

Its scope is vast; its approach ranges from the chronological to the thematic; it embraces many cultural, as well as theological and religious, aspects of the subject. Finally, it is informed by a rich comparative vision that includes wide-ranging discussion of other religions. Many moving stories were handed down about the martyrs’ final days. Blessed John Sandys (1586) was allowed to celebrate Mass the morning of his execution and delivered a moving exhortation to the congregation (though his execution was bungled by the inexperienced executioner); Blessed Alexander Crowe (1586) freshlyshaved a tonsure on his head to show his pride in the priesthood on the day of his death; Blessed Richard Simpson (1588) embraced theladder and kissed its steps as he was led to the gallows; Blessed Joseph Lambton (1592) encouraged his fellow victims with the words, ‘Let us be merry, for tomorrow I hope we shall have a heavenly breakfast.’

The 1563 edition of Foxe's Book of Martyrs records that William Dighel was burned at about the same time as Nicholas Sheterden.
