Anglo-Spanish Relations and the Hispaniolized English Catholic examines how the dependence of exiled Catholics upon the Spanish Habsburgs was represented and exploited by both Catholics and their adversaries. When the Elizabethan soldier Sir William Stanley defected to the Catholic side in the Low Countries, he was pilloried as a degenerate, unnatural Englishmen. In the language of Protestant polemic, Stanley had become a “Hispaniolated” or “Hispaniolized” Englishman. This chapter traces the emergence and deployment of a discourse of Hispaniolization, as well as Catholic counter-discourses. Texts examined include Robert Persons's accounts of English Catholic seminaries in Spain, as well as works about the exile experience of the English Bridgettine nuns.
