1521/2: the most traumatic year in Amersham history

In 1521 five men and one woman were sentenced to be burned because they were Lollards who insisted on reading the Bible in English and praying to God directly in English rather than in Latin through their parish priest. The Museum was planning to commemorate the five hundred years’ anniversary of these events in 2021 but we were prevented by Covid. However, it turns out that the actual burnings took place according to the modern calendar in January 1522 so we are not too late! (Until 1752 years did not change until 25 March).
