Treacherous Faith

The Specter of Heresy in Early Modern English Literature and Culture

David Loewenstein

  • The only book-length study of the specter of heresy and the construction of heretics in early modern English literature and culture, from the early Reformation to the Restoration
  • A cross-disciplinary book that offers a fresh account of religious politics and literature in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England
  • Offers fresh analyses of major writers engaged in the war against heretics in early modern England
  • It also illuminates in detail a wide range of less canonical writers who either engaged in or were the victims of the campaign against heresy
