Abstract

This article re-examines Bodleian MS Eng. poet. b. 5, a book mainly of religious songs for communal use assembled in the 1650s and known to have been amongst the recusants of Wootton Wawen in Warwickshire. A contents list is provided. The book has already been linked with one yeoman family, but this study shows that its materials depend upon the networks of the Jesuit mission, and that the chief scribe was part of, or close to, that mission. Although it displays common features of anthologies for provincial social use, the book furnishes rare textual evidence of missionary indoctrination.
