Review of the hardback: '... you get the feeling that Questier is enjoying himself ... the term 'must read' is over used but, it's the only possible description.' Catholic Times
"In persuasively asserting a place for 'Catholic history' in the central narrative of psot-Reformation politics, Questier has done scholarship a major service." - Peter Marshall, University of Warwick, The Catholic Historical Review
"In Catholicism and the Community, Michael Questier re-examines post-Reformation Catholicism through the lens of two coexistent communities: one, the wider 'Catholic community' in England; the other, an aristocratic entourage." -Rosamund Oates, H-Albion
"...dense in detail with veritable thickets of footnotes, enlivened by a vigorous style and by a fair-minded consideration of the views of other historians. It makes a convincing case for the argument that to be illuminating, the story must include both the internal relations of the community and its relations with the regime." --Paul S. Weaver, Stanford University: Journal of Interdisciplinary History
