This chapter examines the mobilization of popular anti-Catholicism and investigates how the ‘No Popery’ feeling was stimulated and maintained in Great Britain during the mid-nineteenth century. It describes organised popular anti-Catholicism on the middle-class and working-class level and discusses the activities of Protestant societies. It also explores various Protestant initiatives aimed at the lower levels in society including Protestant Institutes and Operative Associations.
