The 1580 Rome and Rheims Plot

In today's Claire Chats video talk, I talk about the Rome and Rheims Plot, a fictional plot in which 20 men, mostly Catholic priests, were implicated. Many of them were tortured, tried and executed.

The book I recommend is God's Traitors: Terror and Faith in Elizabethan England by Jessie Childs. It is excellent. You can view a talk by Jessie called "Religious Terrorism in Tudor England" here on the Tudor Society site - click here.
