Roam the English countryside as you explore a collection of rotogravures featuring historical landmarks from the life of John Bunyan. A wandering English preacher and ex-Civil War parliamentary soldier, he is perhaps best known for penning such popular religious writings as The Pilgrim's Progress and The Holy Wars. Imprisoned a few times for his beliefs and "rabble-rousing," he eventually rose up to become one of the first licensed independent preachers in England.
