This workshop is focused upon reading publics in relation to matters of religious controversy in sixteenth-century Italy, England, and France. The workshop is intended to be exploratory and to open up discussion, within a comparative European perspective, of the realm of book consumption and its broader implications for both individual readers and networks of readers. Papers at the workshop will consider the writings and audience of figures who moved either between Italy and France and/or Italy and England because of their religious commitments (or indeed of texts that moved between these countries).
