£14.95


During the English Reformation, hundreds of brave men and women suffered all manner of persecution in order to cling to the Catholic faith that had been integral to the life of the nation for over a thousand years. Many were subject to heavy fines, exclusion, and prison sentences. For others, particularly priests, or anyone assisting a priest, a death sentence was the expected outcome.

In this fascinating 2-part film, Fr Marcus Holden and Fr Nicholas Schofield lead you on a journey to discover more about some of these heroic figures, the times in which they lived and their significance for Catholics today. From the lives of well-known saints like Thomas More, Margaret Clitherow and Edmund Campion, to lesser known figures like Roger Wrenno and Francis Bell, the message of the English martyrs is re-presented for a contemporary audience. It is a message of great faith and profound courage.

Along the way, you’ll discover places such as Stonor Park and Wardley Hall, Tyburn and Rievaulx Abbey. Interviews with Archbishop Vincent Nichols, Bishop Terence Brain, Lord Camoys, and many more help to re-tell the stories of these heroic figures who laid down their lives to preserve the ‘Faith of Our Fathers.’
