Details

The history of early English printing often focuses on the Protestant Reformation and Luther’s theses against indulgences, yet the first text printed in England was a 1476 papal indulgence from William Caxton’s press. In this talk, Stacie Vos, lecturer in USD’s Department of English and PhD candidate in literature at UCSD, explores the intricate relationship of lay devotional culture and early printed religious texts, including Caxton's influential 1483 edition of saints’ lives, The Golden Legend.
