'Alexandra Walsham gave us a richly detailed and intelligently nuanced account of the ways in which the ruins, wells, hedgerows and improvised shrines of the British isles were used as sacred sites in the post-Reformation period. ...Walsham's characteristics as an historian include a mastery of a prodigious range of primary and secondary sources, the use of myriad examples and micro-narratives to qualify her and other historians' grand narratives, and a sympathetic but unsentimental engagement with the spiritual lives of early-modern Catholics. Rounded off with a 70-page bibliography, this magisterial book will be an invaluable resource for generations of scholars.' Seventeenth Century 'Every essay in this collection features text and language both scholarly and easy on the eye; each has a pleasing flow, which not only enhances the academic value of the work but also solidifies Walsham's reputation as a major voice in the revision of early modern British Catholic studies.' Renaissance & Reformation 'We should be grateful to Ashgate for publishing this collection of twelve of Alexandra Walsham's articles. ... Anyone interested in the history of Catholicism in England and Wales will find this an invaluable work.' Journal of Jesuit Studies 'This volume, then, the fruit of around two decades of research, has much to offer to both students of early modern English and Dutch Catholicism.' Jaap Geraerts, Trajecta
