In this lecture for the 2006 Deep in History conference, literary biographer Joseph Pearce looks at the English Reformation, and specifically recusants- those English under the rule of Anglican monarchs who retained their Catholic faith. Pearce explores the legal burdens placed on these people, and how they strove, often covertly, to preserve Catholic practice and traditions under persecution. Pearce also looks at the Shakespeare family, and makes the case that they were among those recusant Catholics who stayed loyal to Rome under Anglican rule.
