Growing up with great old black and white and color movies was a joy But to judge history by films made by the hundreds in Hollywood would be a huge mistake Many great actresses played ueen Elizabeth such as Bette Davis and Jean Simmons but their portrayals do not accurately depict the evil Elizabeth and her nefarious cohorts perpetrated on her subjects The Golden Age of Elizabeth I even portrayed by the likes of Cate Blanchett today is wholly inaccurate and fails on so many levels that it is virtually a crime against history to be that inaccurateCatholics were not just arrested put in prison and tortured so severely that some lost the use of their hands by hanging from their shackles for hours on end if they lived but had their lands taken away from their families and sometimes they were drawn and uartered The worst was reserved for the priests It s hard for us to understand that sort of brutality let alone accept it as a deterrent to become Catholic but just listen to the rhetoric on the social media sites today and the news How they portray the President and those who support him today a mere fifty years ago would have been unthinkable I can only see that sort of brutality on the horizon when hatred is spewed daily and all based on specious reasons just as the anti Catholic fervor was in Elizabeth s dayThis book is about those who followed their conscience regarding their faith and risked everything to become Catholic and a priest It was only a war of words and the salvation of souls to the Catholics but because of the number of attempts to kill Elizabeth by Catholic kings and Popes it became a means to exterminate a religion they believed would put an end to Englishness Though the priests came in peace there were those who would have liked to see Elizabeth deadIt was interesting to find that Elizabeth kept her Catholicness hidden and eyewitnesses confirmed that she converted on her deathbed Every page of this book is filled with a history that should be told to circumvent the many lies told throughout the years Ms Hogge remains neutral which I appreciate and just tells the story of the dozens of men who gave up their lives because they cared about men s souls

All the usual statements apply for when I read history like this It is not my usual subject area so I have a difficulty reading it and difficulty retaining the information because I lack the background This book is well written if a bit dry and it appears to be impeccably researched as far as I can tell The biggest lesson I think can be drawn from this book is that religion should never mix with government There are plenty of people in this country who want to inject their religion into law and that is fine with them as long as it is their religion but reading this book might help them see how badly things can go when a government favors one religion over anotherMy favorite parts of this book were the details about the punishments meted out to those who were convicted of various things Catholictreasonous and the processes by which people were convicted I also enjoyed the sections that detailed the hides especially those constructed by Nicholas Owen who crafted some amazingly ingenious ways to conceal hidden rooms and crawlspaces
