Responding to R.A. Cantrell's recent posting -- Tyndale was indeed
strangled (garoted) at the stake by his executioner, as represented in
the woodcut in Foxe's __Actes and Monuments__.  In the same illustration
he is reported (in a banner issuing from his mouth) as asking God to
open the King of England's eyes.  The illustration is reproduced and
discussed in the recent article on Tyndale, Foxe, and John Day by John
N. King in __Renaissance Quarterly__.
