1. Silcox, Mary. ""And so the end is death": Life and Afterlife in Stephen Bateman's A Christall Glasse" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Hilton Montreal Bonaventure Hotel, Montreal, Quebec Canada, <Not Available>. 2019-10-16 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
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.

2. Gallant, Michael. "The Armor of God: Saint George, English Nationalism, and Stephen Bateman’s Emblem "Of Faith"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-10-16 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Stephen Bateman’s 1569 A christall glasse of christian reformation features woodcut prints along with the author’s descriptions, and the emblem promoting faith features a knight, explained to be the Christian clad in the “armour of God.” Bateman’s knight represents the English citizen who has accepted Protestant Christianity, anticipating the reader by inscribing onto him or her an English Protestant identity. The knight bears on his shield a cross, the symbol for England’s patron Saint George. Bateman’s emblem "Of Faith" is the site where Saint George is reconstructed into an allegorical representation of Protestant England. Bateman removes the patron saint from strict historical interpretation to invest him with typological significance, participating in the nation building impetus prevalent in sixteenth-century England and establishing a compelling cultural sign later used by such authors as Edmund Spenser.
