The space in which the pulpit at Paul’s Cross stood was used for other displays of royal or ecclesiastical power. This chapter examines the connections between the Paul’s Cross sermons and the executions, book burnings, recantations, and public penances performed near the pulpit or elsewhere in the cathedral churchyard. The different uses made of this public space in the reigns of Elizabeth I, James I, and Charles I are described.

Keywords:   book burnings, executions, recantations, public penance
