The Old Enemies: Catholic and Protestant in Nineteenth-Century English Culture.
Wheeler gives a sweeping analysis of 19th century controversies over the place of Catholocism in English life. He examines the roots of these disputes, and especially focuses on how they were expressed in the literature of the era. Wheeler makes obscure and familiar easy to understand, including topics such as conflicts over historical views of the Reformation or English Schism, differences between the historical interpretations of Macaulay and Carlisle, the Gorham Crisis, Crown v. Rome, dogma v. individualism, and changing sociological ideals. Invaluable to understanding 19th century Britain and Ireland. This copy is almost like new with an immaculate cover.
