§ 9. Roman Catholic devotional literature.


The strict enforcement of the penal laws, and the limited and furtive nature of their opportunities of church worship, prevented Roman Catholics in England from contributing to the general store of printed sermons. Controversial and devotional writings exist in sufficient quantity to show that there were men who might have made good use of happier times. Edmund Campion’s letters are attractive, Parsons’s Christian Directory received the compliment of many protestant editions, and the rich fancy of Robert Southwell’s tracts won the praise of Francis Bacon.   21
