504    Includes bibliographical references( pages 407-419) and 
520    "A true story of plots, priest-holes and persecution and 
       one family's battle to save Catholicism in Reformation 
       England. Elizabeth I criminalised Catholicism in England. 
       For refusing to attend Anglican services her subjects 
       faced crippling fines and imprisonment. For giving refuge 
       to outlawed priests -- the essential conduits to God's 
       grace -- they risked death. Almost two hundred Catholics 
       were executed in Elizabeth's reign and hundreds more 
       wasted away in prison. They were beleaguered on the one 
       hand by a Papacy that branded Elizabeth a heretic and 
       sanctioned her deposition and on the other by a government
       that saw itself fighting a war on terror and deployed 
       every weapon in its arsenal, including torture, to combat 
       the threat. With every invasion scare and attempt on 
       Elizabeth's life, the danger for England's Catholics grew.
       God's Traitors explores this agonising conflict of loyalty
       from the perspective of one Catholic family, the Vauxes of
       Harrowden Hall. To follow the Vaux story -- from staunch 
       loyalty to passive resistance to increasing activism -- is
       to see, in microcosm, the pressures and painful choices 
       that confronted the Catholic community of Reformation 
       England. Theirs in an enthralling tale of plots, priest-
       holes and persecution plated out in a world of shadows 
       people by spies and agents provocateurs. They lived in a 
       state of siege, under constant surveillance. The petty 
       squabbles, unsuitable marriages, love and laughter of 
       family life were punctuated by dawn raids, sudden arrests 
       and clandestine meetings. Above all, this is a timeless 
       and timely story of human courage and frailty, repression 
       and reaction and the power of faith against the sternest 
       of odds."--Publisher's description
