The interaction of the Catholic community with the outside world, or, rather, the rest of English society, was something which Professor Bossy’s justly famous magnum opus, The English Catholic Community 1570–1850, for methodological reasons, did not fully address. In some very real sense Catholicism did become, as Bossy argued, ‘sectarian’. But Bossy developed this concept by writing about his topic from within. 4 But this did not mean that the relationship of minority to majority could or should not be considered.
