In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to be English and Catholic was to face persecution, financial penalties, and sometimes death. Yet some English Catholics prospered, reconciling their faith and loyalty to their country. Among the most prominent was George Calvert, a talented and ambitious man who successfully navigated the politics of court and became secretary of state under King James I. A conforming Protestant from the age of twelve, Calvert converted back to Catholicism when a political crisis forced him to resign his position in 1625. The king rewarded Calvert by naming him Baron of Baltimore in Ireland. Insulated by wealth, with the support of powerful friends, and no longer occupied with court business, Baltimore sought to exploit his land grants in Ireland and Newfoundland. Seeking to increase his own fortune and status while enlarging the king's dominions, he embarked on a series of colonial enterprises that eventually led to Maryland.

The experiences of Calvert and his heirs foster our understanding of politics and faith in Jacobean England. They also point to one of the earliest codifications of religious liberty in America, for in founding Maryland, Calvert and his son Cecil envisioned a prosperous society based on freedom of conscience. In English and Catholic, John D. Krugler traces the development of the "Maryland Designe," the novel solution the Calverts devised to resolve the conflict of loyalty they faced as English Catholics. In doing so, Krugler places the founding and early history of Maryland in the context of pervasive anxieties in England over identity, allegiance, and conscience.

Explaining the evolution of the Calvert vision, Krugler ties together three main aspects of George Calvert's career: his nationalism and enthusiasm for English imperialism; his aim to find fortune and fame; and his deepening sense of himself as a Catholic. Skillfully told here, the story of the Calverts' bold experiment in advancing freedom of conscience is also the story of the roots of American liberty.

From the Back Cover:

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to be English and Catholic was to face persecution, financial penalties, and sometimes death. Yet some English Catholics prospered, reconciling their faith and loyalty to their country. Among the most prominent was George Calvert, an ambitious adventurer whose colonial enterprises eventually led to Maryland.

In founding Maryland, Calvert and his son Cecil envisioned a prosperous society based on peaceful coexistence between Catholics and Protestants. English and Catholic traces the development of their "Maryland Designe," the earliest attempt at religious freedom in America.

"A well-written contribution to the history of the Calverts and the founding of Maryland."―Choice

"A highly readable and engrossing story, and Krugler has vividly reconstructed and narrated it... An impressive achievement that sheds much light on the history of both colonial America and seventeenth-century England."―American Historical Review

"The whole narrative is adroitly woven around a central theme of opposing polarities of religion and politics, state and church, conformity and dissent."―Journal of American History

"This book has many virtues, not least as an account of the establishment of the only Catholic colony in colonial America, and the attempt to create a religiously pluralist society in an intolerant world."―English Historical Review

"This meticulously researched and well-crafted work will stand as the definitive study on the Lords Baltimore."―Catholic Historical Review

"A fine addition to the field... will be useful not only to students of early Maryland but those interested in court politics, English Catholicism, and the development of religious toleration."―William and Mary Quarterly

John D. Krugler is a professor of history at Marquette University.
