The contemplative order of the Carthusians, founded by Saint Bruno in the 1 l th Century, was one order most heavily attacked. To prove his earthly power, Henry VIII captured, overcame. and executed many of these her- mit monks. Beginning on June 6 and ending on September 20, 1537, many of "these teachers of their time" faced public atrocities and finally execution according to the whim of their ruler. The famous place of execution was always Tyburn Hill. A monk named Greenville was the first martyr to die on exhibi- tion during this time. He was fol- lowed by John Davy on June 8 and five others by the names of Salt, Pierson, Green, Scryven and Redying during the course of the next ten days. Even with- out food and water, almost a month passed before Brother Bere died and two months before Thomas Johnson died on Sep- tember 20. Many suppose that Cromwell himself ordered mini- mum food rations for those re- maining religious in order that they may be preserved as further and future examples for execu- tion. The Mountain Messenger's Weekly Church Salute Brother Horne, the last known living member of the group of Carthuslans arrested on May 29, 1537 finally met his death on August 4, 1549. He was publlically hanged, disem- bowled, and finally quartered be- fore all of those in attendance at this ceremony on Tyburn Hill. In 1886 Pope Leo XIII added these faithful men to the honor roll of the glorious and blessed martyrs of saints. With hopes that we may be as constant in our faith, we remember them on September 20.
