Through the story of Margaret Clitherow, authors Lake (history and history of Christianity, Vanderbilt U.) and Questier (early modern history, U. of London) provide a greater understanding of English Catholicism and the Protestant regime in the Elizabethan era. Clitherow was literally pressed to death in 1586 for her refusal to plead after she was charged with the crime of harboring Catholic priests. Regarded as a saint and martyr, Clitherow's story portrays a much larger issue: what happens when the state cannot contain or crush religious minorities. The book contains extensive notes and a number of illustrations. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
