Chapter Summary

This chapter is about the cultural response, especially the linguistic response, in the exiled Catholic communities on the Continent to this kind of rewriting of religious and cultural history. It focuses on the ways in which the exiled Catholic community, especially members of the Society of Jesus, perceived a diverse Britain and Ireland, made up of a diversity of peoples and languages. The chapter considers the career of the Jesuit linguist who wrote the multilingual inscriptions still to be seen in the Basilica of the Holy house at Loreto. Robert Corbington SJ was born at Dublin in about 1596, his Catholic parents having fled to Ireland from religious persecution in their native north of England. Hints of how the global Jesuit linguistic policy on minority languages was applied to the languages of Scotland can be recovered from manuscript material in their Roman archives.
