CATHOLICS WRITING THE NATION IN EARLY MODERN BRITAIN AND IRELAND

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2008. First Edition. Hardcover. Inscribed by the author on the half-title. "Modern scholars, fixated on the 'winners' in England's sixteenth- and seventeenth-century religious struggles, have too readily assumed the inevitability of Protestantism's historical triumph and have uncritically accepted the reformers' own rhetorical construction of themselves as embodiments of an authentic Englishness. Christopher Highley interrogates this narrative by examining how Catholics from the reign of Mary Tudor to the early seventeenth century contested and shaped discourses of national identity, patriotism, and Englishness." Octavo: 231 p. with 8 illustrations. Original cloth binding, with gilt titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #74345
