9780851157573: Church Papists: Catholicism, Conformity and Confessional Polemic in Early Modern England

`Church Papist' was a nickname, a term of abuse, for those English Catholics who outwardly conformed to the established Protestant Church and yet inwardly remained Roman Catholics. The more dramatic stance of recusancy has drawn historians' attention away from this sizeable, if statistically indefinable, proportion of Church of England congregations, but its existence and significance is here clearly revealed through contemporary records, challenging the sectarian model of post-Reformation Catholicism perpetuated by previous historians. Alexandra Walsham explores the aggressive reaction of counter-Reformation clergy to the compromising conduct of church papists and the threat they posed to Catholicism's separatist image; alongside this she explains why parish priests simultaneously condoned qualified conformity. This scholarly and original study thus draws into focus contemporary clerical apprehensions and anxieties, as well as the tensions caused by the shifting theological temper ofthe late Elizabethan and early Stuart church.

ALEXANDRA WALSHAM is Lecturer in History at the University of Exeter.

Review:

A short book on a big subject...fluent, well-structured, sensitive, wise and mature. I wish it had been twice as long. --Journal of Ecclesiastical History

An important and satisfying monograph... Many insights emerge from this rich and original study, which whets the appetite for more. --English Historical Review

A distinguished and impressively scholarly book... Alexandra Walsham has succeeded admirably in her basic aim of putting church papists firmly on the religious map of early modern England. --History
