Abstract

The introduction outlines Hussey’s reputation as patron of the arts both during his career and since his death. It reviews the scholarly literature to date insofar as it has paid Hussey any attention, and sets out the several areas of the current historiography of British religion and the arts to which the study addresses itself. Finally, it outlines the argument of the book chapter by chapter, and ends with some remarks on the scope of the book and what it aims (and does not) to do.
