Catholic Queen, Protestant Patriarchy: Mary Queen of Scots and the Politics of Gender and Religion
Mary Stuart has intrigued people since her birth. The significance of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, though, does not rest simply in the dramatic events of her life: rather, Mary's significance lies in her contemporaries' reaction to her. As a Catholic, a woman and a monarch in sixteenth century Europe, the debates surrounding Mary's life, reign, and imprisonment reveal a world in flux whose members attempted to solve the crises of religion, nationhood, authority, and gender that confronted them.
