Tresham's World

Susan M Cogan

What was it like to live as a Catholic in Elizabethan England? To live in a society where your faith was increasingly held as a liability, in conflict with local and national allegiances? Thomas Tresham was a leading member of English gentry. Yet he, and his family, were recusant Catholics. He lived in a provincial world alongside protestant neighbours of all creeds. Some conformed to the religious settlement of the day, and some did not - and some, like him, did and did not depending on the moment, and the need. This project explores and maps the people, networks, and spaces related to Tresham and his world.
