Product description

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.

Review quote

"In their introduction to this fascinating and stimulating collection of essays, Ronald Corthell, Frances Dolan, Christopher Highley, and Arthur Marotti locate their volume within an ongoing scholarly reassessment of the role of Catholicism in post-Reformation England, and of English Catholicism in relation to continental and archipelagic religious practices. . . . Overall, this wide-ranging and knowledgeable array of essays not only is a significant addition to the scholarly literature on its own account but should also do much to open up a diverse area to further research." --"Journal of British Studies"
