John Rogers Reformation Martyr

1505 - 1555

Over 460 years ago, on 4 February 1555, John Rogers was tied to a post in Smithfield, London, firewood was heaped around him, and he was burned to death — because he was an evangelical Christian.

In the next three and a half years, nearly 300 more martyrs died in the same way. Our generation must not forget the spiritual inheritance these men and women have left us.
