The story of Catholicism in England, told here through the broad sweep of the centuries, covers the periods of conversion, medieval consolidation, the crisis of the Reformation and then the Second Spring and its aftermath.

This booklet offers readers a general framework into which they can slot whatever historical facts they already know. The often largely hidden history of the English Catholic Church and its intriguing personalities, cultural riches, controversies and stories of courage are here vividly brought to life in an engaging narrative. It is only by studying the past that we can understand the present and look forward to the future.
