Event: What is Early Modern English Catholicism?Durham University, 28 Jun – 1 Jul 2013

What is Early Modern English Catholicism?
Ushaw College, Durham University,
28th June – 1 July 1 2013.

An international and interdisciplinary conference celebrating the work of Eamon Duffy and exploring what is meant by the term ‘Early Modern English Catholicism’. Covering the period from the break with Rome to the French Revolution, the conference will consider the subject from very different angles, questioning perceived notions of what is actually meant when Early Modern Catholicism is mentioned in the English context.

Delegates have been drawn from home institutions, as well as those in the USA, South Africa, France, Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Eire, Poland and Australia.

The conference will include a concert of recusant period music in Ushaw’s historic St Cuthbert’s chapel, as well as guided tours of Ushaw’s library and an exhibition of the college’s holdings.
