xiv + 85 pp. + ads. Index. Frontis color plate + 3 color plates in text. "McGrath has trawled the two principal lay archives of (Golden Age) Segovia with sedulous care. The catch has turned out to be as important as his subject. When placed in a more general European Tridentine and post-Tridentine context, with first the Jesuits of St. Ignatius of Loyola and later the Piatrists of St. Joseph of Calasanz, resorting to theatre for the indoctrination of the youth of the central and southern European Catholic Europe, the more local case of Segovia strengthens our understanding of the policy of Catholicisation, pursued consistently and coherently by the House of Habsburg in the 16h and 17th centuries." Special emphasis on the Corpus Christi. White cloth color with color photograph of a Segovian street procession has a bit of shelf grubbiness (not much). interior is clean and bright, appears unread. ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
