immensely learned, closely argued, and beautifully written ... offers innumerable rewards for the patient reader who appreciates Womersley's subtlety of argumentation as well as the generous number of bold, bracing claims to be found in these pages ... [it] will be an influential book for years to come. It is an indispensable study for all who are concerned with how literary and historical texts negotiated the perilous waters of confessional conflict in early-modern England. (Jonathan Baldo, The Review of English Studies)
Womersley is a reliable and clear-sighted guide. (Diarmaid MacCulloch, Times Literary Supplement)
Womersley combines impeccable historical scholarship with critical acumen in this original and challenging book (Paul Dean, English Studies)
