Acts and Monuments

Publication Date: October 6, 2010

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

"Acts and Monuments" is not only the longest book in history (it's nearly four times the length of the Bible), but it also has the longest title in history. To wit: "Acts and Monuments of these latter and perilous days, touching matters of the church, wherein are comprehended and described the great persecution and horrible troubles that have been wrought and practiced by the Romish prelates from the year of Our Lord a thousand to the time now present."

Catchy, huh
