Accession number 09.49
Title Admonition
Author bonner, Bishop Edmund
Date 1541
Notes When Henry VIII decreed that a copy of the English Bible be placed in every English Church, Bishop Bonner had six Bibles chained to pillars in St. Paul's in London for people to read. With each Bible was an admonition that people were to read the Word of God with discretion, reverence and pious behavior. This is one of only two remaining copies of Bonner's Admonition.
