Lost saints: printed catholic ephemera in the Dutch republic

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter presents the first typology of Catholic ephemera printed in the Dutch Republic. Using archival sources, I have been able to identify twenty-five unique types of ephemera printed by and for the Cathlic community. In this chapter, I present this typology, contextualised within the broader culture of Catholic print in the Dutch Republic, and describe how it provides unique insight into the everyday contours of seventeenth-century life.
