“Pilgrims and Martyrs: The Engraved Title Page of Ephrata’s Martyrs Mirror,” my article in American Communal Societies Quarterly in 2011,3 offers an interpretation of an engraved title page preceding Part 1 in some copies of Ephrata’s Martyrs Mirror printed in 1685. That article mentions briefly the existence of a second engraved title page for Part 2. The current article will provide a description of the second engraved title page--only two of which are known to exist--and offer some interpretive suggestions for its image.
