‘The Catholic Conundrum’ in History Today

My article ‘The Catholic Conundrum’ has just appeared in the February 2023 edition of History Today, exploring the phenomenon of the survival of Catholicism in early modern England. The article pays particular attention to the relationship between Catholics and the government, and the paradox of a government that simultaneously needed Catholics and subjected them to intense persecution. The article is based on my book with Alan Dures, English Catholicism 1558-1642, which was published by Routledge in 2021.
