print from 1530 onwards, this was piecemeal. 10 Foxe’s text gathered many of these works and formed them into a cohesive narrative, functioning in the same way as the memory of the human mind. As such, the lives, deaths, and beliefs of the lollards are preserved in this book, and as the book became a semi-official history of the Church of England, so too the lollards became part of that history. Foxe’s Acts and Monuments had become a key to cultural memory, 11 precisely what Foxe had intended when writing it; after all, the book’s title proclaimed not just the

already part of a vivid cultural memory of Lancashire witchcraft. Ten-year-old Edmund Robinson, the main accuser of the second generation of witches, stepped into the child-witness role previously occupied by the nine-year-old Jennet Device at the first trial. His testimony was imbued with memories and stories of what had gone before. He later admitted that ‘he had heard neighbours talk of a witch feast that was kept at Mocking Tower in Pendle Forest about twenty years since and thereupon he framed those tales concerning the persons aforesaid

to take part in the main Holocaust commemoration event. Explicitly linking this decision to the politics of the Middle East, this public conflict situated cultural memories of European antisemitism in a competitive relationship with recognition of histories of ‘Western’ colonial violence (Macdonald 2005). 14 This drew on the controversial working definition of antisemitism produced by the European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC). The outlawing of analogies was also emphasised by the UJS antisemitism guide, which explained: ‘The murder of

removed, or at least made unavailable to those who wanted to practise it overtly? Conversion, in other words, to what and from what? Among historians there has long been something of a schism between those who think that Catholicism (as a form of religious identity) in later sixteenthcentury England was primarily a residual attachment to the past, a popular cultural memory which could not be extirpated by the reforming agencies of the state and, on the other hand, those who regard it (the real thing, that is) as the product of evangelical conversion/change of religion

has shown that ‘abandoned [Catholic] symbols or practices do not simply disappear from the mental landscape’, but can attain a new cultural meaning in secular contexts and in particular in poetry.9 According to Mazzola, ‘Renaissance literature might therefore be approached in terms of a sacred history of lost ideas, and read in terms of sacred signs which were downplayed or even disowned.’10 Such arguments are based on a concept of cultural memory that includes repressed and censored cultural practices.

valuation of ancient forms of commemoration and of remembering and forgetting themselves. Over the past two decades memory studies have seen a growth in interest parallel to that experienced by religion, and it is perhaps no accident that the two areas have developed concurrently. The two approaches to the cultural study of conflict within early modern England are so closely connected that it is not possible to treat the issue of cultural memory in early modern England without taking into account religion, without considering, for example, the widespread cultural
