Conference on ‘Paul’s Cross and the culture of Persuasion, 1520-1640’

McGill University, Montreal, Canada, 16-18th August, 2012.

Papers will be presented on various aspects of this famous pulpit in the life of early-modern England, and especially with respect to the prominent role played by preaching at Paul’s Cross in shaping England’s early-modern religious and political identities. Our goal in particular is to initiate a reappraisal of the formation of sixteenth-century popular opinion on the hypothesis that Paul’s Cross sermons played a vital role in promoting the growth and development of a nascent ‘public sphere’ in Tudor and early-Stuart England.
