Example text

Throughout this period institutional Catholicism survived in early modern England with minimal structure. Rome continued to appoint bishops to vacant sees in Ireland—though they were unable to take possession of them—and thus created a hierarchy that shadowed the oYcial Church structure. But there were no similar appointments in England and, consequently, after the Marian bishops died out no Catholic hierarchy existed to adjudicate disputes, grant dispensations, or administer sacraments such as conWrmation.

In this cause they found ready allies in London authorities, who allowed publication of their books under Wctitious foreign imprints. In 1690 Edward Gee published Persons’s Memorial for the Reformation of England as The Jesuit’s Memorial for the Destruction of the Church of England because, he said, it more eloquently exposed Jesuit perWdy than any book he had written. Orality, manuscript, and print, moreover, often intersected in complicated triangulation. Protest songs and ballads lifted the spirits of Catholics in secret gatherings and in manuscript anthologies, such as Constance Aston Fowler’s book, Huntington 904, Cotton Vespasian A-25, Additional MS 15,225, and sporadically in print.

This assumption,’ writes Bossy elsewhere, ‘might be demonstrated almost by statistics alone: from the Recusant rolls of Elizabeth to the Returns of the Papists of the later eighteenth century, every attempt to count Catholics reveals them as coagulated in local groups at the centre of which a gentleman’s household will usually be found’ (The English Catholic Community, 1975: 175). In addition to the noble families mentioned above, there was Francis Tregian of Cornwall, the Gages of Surrey, the Stonors of Oxfordshire, the BedingWelds of Norfolk, the Rookwoods of SuVolk, and others.
