Catholic Family History Society
A talk on Catholic Recusant Women in Sixteenth and early seventeenth Century England.
Saturday, 30 January 2021 at 2pm GMT
The aim of this talk is to highlight the role of Catholic women in the sixteenth century in a time of social turmoil. At a time of religious persecution, women were the glue which held Catholic families together as well as the wider Catholic community both at home and in exile. It examines the contribution of saints such as Margaret Clitherow and other women from different levels of society including some well-known recusant families. The role of Catholic recusant women is sometimes underestimated and not acknowledged by historians.
Tim Guile has written articles for publications such as the Midlands Catholic Society, The English Catholic History Association, The Anglo-Catholic History Society and Fellowship and Fairydust publications. He has given a talk on Catholic recusancy in north Oxfordshire at a conference held at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford in 2019. He is a graduate of Liverpool and Warwick Universities.
