Title continues: "bestehend in einer vollstandigen und glaubwurdigen Nachricht von dem Leben, Leiden, und glorreichen Tode der Martyrer, sowohl aus der ersten Christlichen als auch der nachfolgenden Protestantischen Kirche in allen Theilen der welt von der geburt unsers Erlosers, bis zu den spatesten Zeiten der religiosen Verfolgungen." Fox's Book of Martyrs became the model of all later martyrologies and was immensely popular with the masses. This German text edition contains a section on the history and doctrine of the Mennonites, from p. 748 onwards, and on their persecution, from p. 785. The author of these later sections was probably I. D. Rupp of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This is probably among the earliest Mennonite histories published in America.
