‘English Catholics and the Supernatural’ reviewed in Renaissance Quarterly

A review of my English Catholics and the Supernatural, 1553-1829 has just appeared in the Spring 2014 edition of Renaissance Quarterly, pp. 303-5, by Peter Marshall. This is the first review of my book to appear in an academic journal (that I am aware of, anyway), and it is pleasingly positive. Marshall describes the book as ‘an intelligent and illuminating study of a good subject’, and concludes that ‘it is full of interesting insight and sound judgment, and offers some important points of orientation for the mapping of a Catholic subculture that was also an integral part of a broader cultural landscape’. I look forward to reading more reviews as they filter through from the journals.
