This unique and groundbreaking book challenges the prevailing critical view that Gothic is a vehicle for anti-Catholic, anticlerical sentiment. It challenges the accepted scholarly view that the Catholic motifs contained in Gothic novels (e.g. monks, nuns, abbeys, confessionals) signify anti-Catholic prejudice and anti-Church subversiveness on the part of the author and the audience.
