(Em)bodying the Word

Textual Resurrections in the Martyrological Narratives of Foxe, Crespin, de Bèze and d'Aubigné


Catharine Randall Coats

Contents: Examines martyrological narratives (as opposed to and distinct from hagiographical accounts). Crespin's Histoire des martyrs as a work in which bodies make the text; d'Aubigné's Les tragiques as one which emphasizes body and word: de Bèze's Icones stresses emblematic presentation of word and image (body); Foxe's Actes and Monuments, an Anglican treatment, nuances Calvinist word vs. body problem.
