English Catholics and Ireland asks how early modern English Catholics of various stripes viewed their co-religionists in Ireland as well as Irish Catholicity generally. Privileged in Medieval English Catholic ideology as an Isle of Saints, the status of Ireland and its people was an especially vexed one for English Catholics at a time when Ireland was figured mostly negatively in English representations and when English rule in Ireland was experiencing fierce resistance from insurgents who were beginning to claim the symbols of an Irish Catholic nationalism. Figures and texts examined include Edmund Campion's Historie of Ireland; Richard Stanihurst; the English Catholic rebel in Ireland, Nicholas Sander; Anthony Munday; and Sir John Harington.

Keywords:   Ireland, Nicholas Sander, Richard Stanihurst, Edmund Campion, Anthony Munday, Sir John Harington
