Item Description...
Catholic Collecting presents an exquisite display of English art of the Middle Ages and Early Modern era preserved by recusant Catholics in England and the United States. The vast collection features stained glass, alabaster, carving, manuscripts, printed books, liturgical vessels, paintings, and vestments, including the prized chasuble given to Westminster Abbey by Henry VII. A series of essays introducing the objects profiles aspects of piety, politics, and art, including the early missionary work of the Society of Jesus in England and the Maryland Colony. When England became a Protestant state in the sixteenth century, religious imagery was largely banned in the visual arts and Catholics were forbidden to erect buildings. They came to identify their faith with their collections of illicit statues, paintings, chalices, processional crosses and other objects of ritual, prayer books, and works of devotional literature. The art was preserved by Catholics who, recusing themselves from oaths of loyalty and participation in the state-sanctioned religion, were dedicated to collecting pious texts and images even in the face of opposition. These objects embodied their bonds with God, church tradition, and each other. Many of the treasures featured in this book are housed in museums and in the rare book libraries at major Jesuit institutions. Among those contributing to the exhibition are Stonyhurst College, Lancashire; Campion Hall, Oxford; Georgetown University; Loyola University Chicago; the Bar Convent, York; and the Worcester Art Museum.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well Written and Illustrated  Jan 9, 2007
For those interested in Roman Catholic history in England and America during the time of Protestant persecution, this volume provides a solid overview and is well illustrated with artistic and literary pieces. Connected to a now finished exhibition, the work stands sufficiently by itself and helps develop a greater understanding for the development of Catholicism during a time of persecution. England did not grant emancipation to Catholics until the 19th century and religious freedom and liberty in America was often viewed as being only for Protestants - attempts were often and repeatedly made to deprive Catholics of liberty, property, and even, on occasion, life. Inspite of these difficulties, Catholic culture and life survived - and this volume does a good job of explaining the art, culture, and concept of Catholic identity as it developed in this period.
