This interdisciplinary conference explores the subterranean world of Elizabethan Catholic print and scribal culture, set against the backdrop of press censorship, illicit printing, book smuggling, subversive scribal publication, and the uses of Catholic writing by government agents. The study of book circulation illuminated the nature and significance of the persecuted religious minority that was, by the end of the 16th century, no longer supposed to exist.
