British Catholicism in the European Imagination c.1530-1800

Catholicism in the British Isles was an international enterprise. With seminaries, convents and printing-presses abroad, expatriate communities, and its natural dependence on the papacy, international patronage – and therefore international perceptions – mattered. British Catholics spent considerable time, effort and ink on portrayals of themselves and their nation for European audiences. The many and varied forms these portrayals took crossed genres as well as borders.

This conference explores these projects and their impact. It brings together scholarship on British Catholics’ relations with those they lived among as expatriates, the reach of their writings, art, drama, music, and politics in European cultures, and how they were perceived by European writers

Location: H0.03 Humanities Building, University of Warwick
