Reviews
Review Quotes
'a major publishing event'
'Pickering and Chatto are to be commended for publishing such a work which could help lead to a rethinking about the nature and importance of the Catholic community in the eighteenth century; it can be highly recommended for any serious library of religious thought and history.'
'The significance of having such clean and luxuriously bound copies of these texts is great...with its lucid general introduction, its bibliographical essay, useful notes, and carefully devised index, this is a set libraries cannot afford not to buy.'

Early Modern History, Catholicism and Eighteenth-Century England
Main Description
This comprehensively edited facsimile set is the first collection of English-language Catholic literature covering the long eighteenth century. Much focus has been given to the periods of martyrdom and violent persecution from the end of the sixteenth to the end of the seventeenth centuries and, latterly, on the so-called 'Second Spring' of English Catholicism associated with John Henry Newman in the nineteenth century; but until now scant attention has been paid to the 'middle period' of post-Reformation English Catholic history under investigation here, an era characterised by numerous key events in British history between the Exclusion Crisis of 1679-81 and civil emancipation in 1829. The extremely rare documents republished here all come from the Talbot Library in Lancashire, UK. Full editorial apparatus includes a substantial general introduction, extensive headnotes and a consolidated index.
