Abstract

This book is a revisionist study of English Catholicism among the Yorkshire gentry in the century following the English Reformation. Previous works on the topic have tended to overemphasize the heroic sacrifice of prominent males and priests, while downgrading the role of others in the maintenance of Catholicism in the county. This study challenges this view by asserting the importance of other members of society in maintaining a Catholic community, looking at the activities of Catholic women, the younger sons of gentry families and some of the less well-known individuals of the Yorkshire communities.
