Scandal and Obscenity: Free Downloads!

Emily’s chapter on ‘Scandal’, co-written with Rowan Tomlinson, from Renaissance Keywords, edited by Ita McCarthy, is available as a free download from the Legenda website.
The chapter explores the secular and theological charge of the word scandal in the sixteenth century, and argues that it was a keyword for both the Renaissance and the Reformation.

Hugh’s état present of studies on early modern French obscenity is also available for free download from the French Studies website.
Hugh’s AHRC-funded Obscenity network was in many ways a precursor for our current project on Gossip and Nonsense.
