The charges brought against Edward included eleven distinct heresies. He was excommunicated, publicly denounced, and sentenced to burn at the stake the following spring on 9 Mar 1612 by a warrant issued by King James I. He was spared but refused to make a statement in writing, and was burned at the stake 11 Apr 1612.
