Fox’s Book of Martyrs

https://www.biblestudytools.com/history/foxs-book-of-martyrs/

Edited by William Byron Forbush This is a book that will never die — one of the great English classics. . . . Reprinted here in its most complete form, it brings to life the days when “a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid,” “climbed the steep ascent of heaven, ‘mid peril, toil, and pain.” “After the Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our time it is still a living force. It is more than a record of persecution. It is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, as well as a source of edification.” 

Fox’s Book of Martyrs is in the public domain and may be freely used and distributed.

Matthias


Of whom less is known than of most of the other disciples, was elected to fill the vacant place of Judas. He was stoned at Jerusalem and then beheaded.

Acts 1:20-26 (NKJV)
20  “For it is written in the book of Psalms: ‘Let his dwelling place be desolate,And let no one live in it’; and, ‘Let another take his office.’
21  “Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
22  beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.”
23  And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24  And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen
25  to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.”
26  And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
