Lest We Be Damned: Practical Innovation & Lived Experience Among Catholics in Protestant England, 1559-1642by Lisa McClain
Through compelling personal stories and in rich detail, McClain reveals the give-and-take interaction between the institutional church in Rome and the needs of believers and the hands-on clergy who provided their pastoral care within England. In doing so, she illuminates larger issues of how believers and low-level clergy push the limits of official orthodoxy in order to meet devotional needs.
