March 2017: New Translation of Ribadeneira Text

Spencer Weinreich has published a new translation of the Pedro de Ridabeneira’s “Ecclesiastical History of the Schism of the Kingdom of England” as part of Brill’s Jesuit Studies book series. Weinreich’s is the first English translation of the text that Ribadeneira began in 1588 and continued to edit until his death in 1611. With this volume, according to Brill, “the History, long derided as mere propaganda, emerges as remarkable evidence of the centrality of historiography to the intellectual, theological, and political battles of early modern Europe.”
