Through Faith They Still Speak (6/12/05)

"I do not think that a Christian in our times ought to die in his be accused and cast into prison is a trifle; to be scourged, to be hanged, to be sewn up in a sack, to be thrown to wild beasts, to be consumed by fire, — all these are trifles, if only by such punishments truth is brought into the light of day." (Antonio Paleario, cited in Reformation History Library [Albany, Oregon: AGES Software, 1998], History of the Reformation in the Time of Calvin, Vol. 4, pp. 395-396)
