English Catholics and Discourses of the Nation begins by situating the book within current work on early modern Catholic culture and in relation to ongoing debates about national identity-formation in the pre-industrial era. The chapter then takes up the vexed concept of a Catholic community and the relation between stay-at-home Catholics and their exiled brethren. Stay-at-home Catholics adhered tenaciously to an indigenous version of their faith that they saw as being threatened as much by imported forms of Catholicism as by Protestant innovations. The second part of the chapter turns looks at the reign of Mary and Philip as a time when some of the key concepts of English Catholic nationalism were formulated.

Keywords:   Exiles, stay-at-home Catholics, indigenous Catholic identity, Mary and Philip
