This chapter studies Southwell's writing after 1586, which was full of the new understanding of the imaginary sharing of Christ's agonies that are encouraged in the Exercises, and takes a look at several post-Reformation theorists who were making waves with their new visual and rhetorical approaches. It notes that, since the Counter-Reformation was not available in England, Southwell created his own virtual church and pulpit, along with Henry Garnet. The chapter also looks at Southwell's English translations of Eucharistic hymns and the dual disguise that Southwell used, which allowed him to shift from being a lyricist to a Jesuit priest.
