  • Through Shakespeare’s Eyes: Seeing the Catholic Presence in the Plays

    $25.95
    Here the popular and provocative author digs into the plays, which were written and first performed during the English crown's persecution of Catholics. English history and literature were taught for generations through the prism of English Protestantism. Of late both of these fields have been dominated in universities and academic presses by modern scholars with filters and interpretations of their own. Though the evidence for Shakespeare's Catholicism has been studied before now, thanks, in part, to the unique contribution of Joseph Pearce, the Bard's genius is being analyzed in the open air of the public arena, the very place where Shakespeare intended his dramas to entertain and edify.

  • The English Reformation (hardback)

    $29.95
    The English Reformation is quite possibly the most misunderstood and thus misconstrued religious era in human history. The urban legend holds that English Catholics were sick of “papal tyranny” and threw in with heroic, protestant “reformers” to save Christianity from the evil, illegitimate Catholic Church. This little book, with no reference or debate over theology, entirely and completely refutes this false narrative. Father Culkin takes the reader on a 13 chapter crash course in what really happened using the historical record and over 400 years of scholarship on the subject. As the rising threat of Islam grows, Christians will need to rejoin the universal Church, restore solidarity and discover that the Faith of their English ancestors was well placed and well loved, in the Roman Catholic Church.
