Antonia Fraser’s British epic
The story of Catholic emancipation in the United Kingdom after two centuries of official discrimination is one of history’s great dramas—and no one is better equipped to recount it than beloved historian Antonia Fraser.
In the summer of 1780, an act of Parliament designed to curb discrimination of Catholics set off the worst civil disturbance in British history. Over the next fifty years, factions ranging from wealthy British Catholics to Ireland’s Protestant aristocracy to the priesthood to the monarchy grappled over the laws of the land. But in 1829, the Roman Catholic Relief Act finally passed—a watershed moment that radically transformed the Victorian age.
The King and the Catholics is an epic saga told by one of our finest historians.
