Nearly four hundred years after his death, Robert Parsons remains one of the most enigmatic figures of late-Tudor England. The primary reason for this nagging uncertainty is that Parsons was on the wrong side of history and that those who opposed him ultimately came to assess his place in history. It was the English Protestants who portrayed him as the archetypal Jesuit: scheming, dishonest, subversive, and ultimately un-English. This book significantly challenges what has come to be the prevailing view of Parsons by surveying and analyzing Parsons's single-minded ideas and plans for the restoration of Catholic rule in England.
