- Curator's comments
- Medallic Illustrations 1, published in 1885, states:
This is an electrotype of a 17th century from the Ducal Library, Gotha.
The original is a very close copy of a medal by George Bower (Medallic Illustrations 1, published in 1885, states: p622.37). It was executed by Daniel Warou, a native of Stockholm, who worked at Dresden at this time, but afterwards removed to Vienna, where he entered the service of the Emperor Charles VI. The only differences are the artist's initials on the reverse and the edge, which is plain on this medal.
This medal refers to the seven Bishops committed to the Tower for opposing the Declaration of Indulgence issued by James II, and for refusing to allow it to be read in their churches.
