About this book

For many English puritans, the new world represented new opportunities for the reification of reformation, if not a site within which they might begin to experience the conditions of the millennium itself. For many Irish Catholics, by contrast, the new world became associated with the experience of defeat, forced transportation, indentured service, cultural and religious loss. And yet, as the chapters in this volume demonstrate, the Atlantic experience of puritans and Catholics could be much less bifurcated than some of the established scholarly narratives have suggested: puritans and Catholics could co-exist within the same trans-Atlantic families; Catholics could prosper, just as puritans could experience financial decline; and Catholics and puritans could adopt, and exchange, similar kinds of belief structures and practical arrangements, even to the extent of being mistaken for each other. This volume investigates the history of Puritans and Catholics in the Atlantic world, 1600-1800.

Reviews

“The collection attempts to trace ‘some of the new kinds of religious relationships which were made possible within the Atlantic world’. Taken together, the eleven essays here represent an admirable attempt to capture the breadth and diversity of religious life in the emerging trans-Atlantic. … The volume takes an innovative approach to the intersection of Protestant and Catholic interests, and represents a welcome contribution to our understanding of the religious cultures nurtured by the expanding early modern trans-Atlantic.” (Matthew C. Bingham, Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 68 (3), July, 2017)
