About the Author:

Peter Lake is University Distinguished Professor of History and Professor of the History of Christianity, Divinity School at Vanderbilt University, USA. From 1993-2009 he was Professor of History at Princeton University, USA. He is the author of many books including The Boxmaker's Revenge and a forthcoming volume on Shakespeare's history plays. Michael Questier is Professor of Early Modern History at Queen Mary, University of London, UK. He is the author of Catholicism and Community in Early Modern England (CUP), Conversion, Politics and Religion in England 1580-1625 (CUP), and co-authored with Peter Lake The Antichrist's Lewd Hat: Protestants, Papists and Players in Post-Reformation England (Yale).

Review:

'The narrative is detailed and intriguing, because Lake and Questier have turned up a wealth of new evidence to defend their case. Thanks to this, we enter the world of Elizabethan religious politics in all its intensity. Who are the heroes and who the villains? The scholarly debate is advanced by this book, and is set to run still further.'

(The Church Times)

'It is not a work about a saint so much as a very skilfully argued analysis of religious politics... This book exposes not sanctity so much as the confusion, conflict and misery of a beleaguered minority, and the damage wrought by political imperatives on quiet faith.'

(The American Spectator)

...it seethes with passion: that of the men and women who killed and were killed and of the authors in unearthing the murky realities behind the life and death of a Catholic icon. (Literary Review)

(Sanford Lakoff)
