Summary "Edmund Campion has always been the leading Elizabethan martyr, an accolade that overshadowed his early life. This biography assesses the power of Campion's spoken word, in Prague and in England, the disastrous impact of the invasion of Ireland on the Jesuit mission, and the drama of his capture, 'conferences' in the Tower and trial. The warm affection he everywhere inspired, was almost submerged in the controversy that surrounded his execution"-- Provided by publisher
