Grafton and Stow
Schism and Antagonism
During the 1560s Richard Grafton and John Stow engaged in an altercation conducted by means of a series of chronicles and abridgements of chronicles in which each silently and selectively re-wrote the work of his antagonist. Although the fact of the hostility between the Protestant Grafton and the recusant Stow has long been known, the textual dimension of their animosity has not until now been fully described. Once it has been recovered, it shows how historical writing could be the vehicle for the expression of confessional resentments.
