Catholicisms, c.1450–c.1800

Catholicisms, c.1450–c.1800 is an interdisciplinary series that focuses on Catholicism as it grew to become a global movement. Recognizing that the early modern Catholic Church was a supranational institution, the series is not limited to one particular country or geographical area but includes work on any location where there was activity relating to Catholicism, from its old heartlands in Europe to ‘new’ grounds of activity in both north and south America, Asia, and Africa. The timeframe is broad, covering what might be described as a period from revolution to revolution. Mindful of the scholarly work that is being carried out across various subject areas, the series brings together work from a range of disciplines in one place, covering subjects such as history, theology, literary studies, music, art history, material and visual culture, political theory, and gender studies. Monographs and coherent essay collections which explore the diverse ways in which Catholicism developed across the globe during the early modern period are welcome.
