These talks on Catholic Emancipation in England were given at our Day Conference at Downside Abbey in 2010. We reproduce them now as useful background to the talks on the Gordon Riots given by our speakers at Downside this year (see separate post on this website). As ever, we are grateful to our speakers for their contributions to our understanding of our Catholic history, and for allowing their talks to be reproduced on this website.
