A Great Martyr’s Day Book

Forgotten Shrines by Dom Bede Camm, O.S.B.  is an excellent entry into the shadow world of the English recusants, and its surviving remnants at the time he wrote, back in 1910. Himself a product of Keble College and a convert, Dom Bede became a monk and developed a strong devotion to the English martyrs. Apart from writing about them, he was instrumental in the founding of Tyburn Convent. The man and his work, as well as the Saints he loved, popularised, and venerated, are an important part of the Patrimony worth thinking about to-day.
