Historical Forgery in Romanophobe Britain: Robert Ware’s Irish Fictions revisited.
8vo, pp. 110, one illustration; printed paper wrappers.
A new and particular account of the anti-Catholic and anti-separatist forgeries of Robert Ware, the seventeenth-century Irish antiquary, who has been called ‘the most audacious fabricator of historical documents who ever lived’. Ware’s formidable output of lively if malicious fictions has distorted Tudor and Stuart history, with remarkable endurance and reiteration, over more than three centuries – despite longstanding efforts at exposure and dismissal, which this study traces closely as well.”
