Ioannes Bunyanus
Ioannes Bunyanus
On November 12, 1660 John Bunyan left home to conduct a worship service at the house of a friend. Earlier that year all non-Anglican houses of worship were closed, making Bunyan's preaching of the gospel illegal. Even though Bunyan had been warned by friends that a warrant was out for his arrest, he went ahead with the service. The service was quickly interrupted by the local constable, who put Bunyan under arrest. John would remain in prison for twelve years. It is during those difficult years in prison that Bunyan discovered his gift of writing. Bunyan is best known for his book Pilgrim's Progress, which was written during the final part of his incarceration.
