This collection of essays explores the survival of Catholic culture in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England - a time of Protestant domination and sometimes persecution. Contributors examine not only devotional, political, autobiographical, and other written texts, but also material objects such as church vestments, architecture, and symbolic spaces. Among the topics discussed in this volume are the influence of Latin culture on Catholic women, Marian devotion, the activities of Catholics in continental seminaries and convents, the international context of English Catholicism, and the influential role of women as maintainers of Catholic culture in a hostile religious and political environment. "Catholic Culture in Early Modern England" makes an important contribution to the ongoing project of historians and literary scholars to rewrite the cultural history of post-Reformation English Catholicism.

Culture for this collection means writing, but also relics, interior decoration, and embroidery, England is more a category up for analysis than firm demarcation geographic, linguistic, or otherwise as evinced in the book s reach into Latin literatures, international religious politics, and European Catholicisms. The result is a book that moves in a number of promising directions for research in the burgeoning field of early-modern Catholicism. "The Catholic Historical Review""
