This volume forms the first modern study of Edmund Campion, the Jesuit priest executed at Tyburn in 1581, and through him focuses on a theme that has been attracting growing interest among sixteenth-century historians: the passage from a Catholic to an Anglican England, and the resistance to this move. The essays collected here investigate the historical context of Campion's mission; different aspects of his writing and work; the network of colleagues with whom he was in contact; his relationship with contemporaries such as Sir Philip Sidney; the effect of his English mission; and the legacy he left. THOMAS M. MCCOOG, S.J. is the Archivist of the British province of the Society of Jesus and a member of the Jesuit Historical Institute at Rome.

A major contribution to English Jesuit and recusant history. HISTORY The success of Reckoned Expense, which is an unusual contribution to Tudor history, comes from its presentation of some very recent, and also some very specialised, research on Catholicism in the British Isles during the reigns of Mary I and Elizabeth I, which, refreshingly, moves away from a completely Anglocentric approach to the period. THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT Scholars interested in the Jesuits, Counter-Reformation Catholicism, or the English Reformation will find much of interest within it. SIXTEENTH CENTURY JOURNAL
