Summary
Britton examines English translations of Calvin, treatises on the sacraments, catechisms, and sermons alongside works by Edmund Spenser, John Harington, William Shakespeare, John Fletcher, and Phillip Massinger. Through charting the intersections of race, Protestant theology, and literary form, the book intervenes in critical debates about the relationship between racial and religious identity in early modern England, as well as in discussions of the social implications of romance
