This book explores the role of children and young people within early modern England's Catholic minority.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lucy Underwood makes a significant contribution towards answering the pertinent question of what it meant to be catholic, and to live as a member of the most `controversial minority' in post-Reformation England. ... she fills a notable gap in the burgeoning field of the history of early modern youth and childhood. ... Underwood paints a vivid picture of the multifaceted experiences of early modern English catholic children and young people, and has paved the way for future research." (Emilie K. M. Murphy, English Historical Review, Vol. 131 (552), October, 2016)

"Underwood has provided an excellent narrative and analysis of children and young people's encounters with the challenging religious landscape of Tudor-Stuart England. She succeeds in bringing English religious history and English childhood history fruitful conversation. ... Scholars of children and youth constantly wrestle with similar tensions and questions about autonomy; Underwood provides a good working model for analyzing those tensions." (Amy Harris, The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth, Vol. 9 (1), 2016)
