'Early Modern Catholics in the British Isles and Europe: Integration or Separation?'

1st July 2015, 10:00 to 3rd July 2015, 17:00, Ushaw College

1–3 July 2015 Ushaw College, Durham Speakers include: Peter Marshall (Warwick) Susannah Monta (Notre Dame) Stefania Tutino (UCLA)

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to explore the degree to which Catholics in the British Isles were integrated with or separated from institutions, people and movements in Europe. We would also encourage proposals that address the relationships between Catholics in Europe and those in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Were Catholics in the British Isles unique and isolated in their archipelagic experiences? How much were they influenced by wider European religious and intellectual movements? To what extent were British and Irish Catholics part of wider continental phenomena? Building on recent work on Catholic exiles, this conference will position Catholics from the British Isles within wider European movements, such as, for example, the Counter-Reformation, Gallicanism, Jansenism or the Enlightenment. The relationships and networks considered are to be explored in the widest possible framework. The timeframe is being understood in the broadest sense, from c.1530 to 1800.
