"And so the end is death": Life and Afterlife in Stephen Bateman's A Christall Glasse

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A Christall Glasse of Christian Reformation (1569) is an emblem book, an anti-Catholic polemic, and a treatise on vice and virtue. Death and the Last Judgment play major roles in this work. After all, what is to stop one from indulging in sin except the recognition that it can hasten death and that, once one is dead, only God can control one's disposition. As a protestant writer, Bateman emphasizes this latter point. Bateman presents his Christall Glasse as a magical mirror, capable of showing what life truly is without the disguises and deceptions that the world, the flesh and the devil (with his aide, the pope) provide. The deadly serious battle for souls taking place between the protestant and roman catholic churches in sixteenth-century England was fought on many levels, including this attempt to engage the reader's own judgement on questions about purgatory and the purpose of death.
