The Burning of Bucer

6 Feb 1557: Remains of the #Protestant theologians Martin Bucer & Paul Phagius are exhumed & burnt at Market Hill #Cambridge #otd after a ‘trial’. – John McCafferty

That’s downright rude.  As Trueman writes

Bucer died on February 28th, 1551, and was buried at St. Mary’s. When Mary I became queen of England, she ordered that his body should be exhumed and burned at the stake as a heretic. This was carried out at Market Hill.

Rude, Mary.  Rude.
