To Sara and Veronica
First words
Both the Papists and the Puritans in Elizabethan England have received a great deal of attention from historians, but for the most part the two groups have been considered in isolation from each other and treated as though they had little in common except, perhaps, hostility to the Elizabethan religious settlement.   (Preface)
Under Henry VII and during the first half of the reign of Henry VIII all Englishmen were required to be members of the Church of Rome.   (Chapter 1)

Book description
This book considers both Catholics and Puritans as groups hostile to the Elizabethan religious settlement.   McGrath argues that they have more in common than they would have cared to admit.   It first considers the problem of religious unity in the Elizabethan period as the government attempted to impose uniformity.  The two groups are then considered chronologically, first separately and then compared and contrasted.   The book ends with the Hampton Court Conference 0f 1604 and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 as useful point at which to conclude the story.   The fortunes of the two groups changes under the Stuarts who follow.
