Mary I

My penultimate chapter on Mary and the English Counter-Reformation has brought some very interesting notions to light. The main theme that seems to run throughout the period 1553-1558 is that of insecurity and fear of disunity - disunity within the realm, whether political or religious, disunity within Mary's council and her foreign advisers, and Mary's own personal disunity between herself and Phillip of Spain. This theme will form the basis of my argument, which I am still putting together.
