First published in 1968, this book provides an introduction to the subject of anti-Catholicism in Victorian England and a selection of illustrative documents. It demonstrates that Victorian ‘No Popery’ agitations were in fact almost the last expressions of a long English tradition of anti-Catholic intolerance and, in reality, the legal and social position of Catholics in the nineteenth century was greatly improved. The introduction was awarded the Thirlwall Essay Prize for 1967.

This book will be of interest to those studying Victorian and religious history.
