The Freethinker a magazine that despite the best efforts of the 19th Century British judicial system is still going strong. Prisoner for Blasphemy is a memoir of his several trials and final imprisonment in Holloway Gaol. Although Foote's was the last prominent blasphemy case in England his hope that the blasphemy law would soon be abolished was not to be realised until almost a century after his death in 2008.
