Category:Martin Marprelate

Martin Marprelate was the pen name of an author in England c. 1588 who wrote inflammatory tracts against the ecclesiastical hierarchy of the increasingly "state' church in England. Various professional writers including Thomas Nashe, Robert Greene, and John Lyly were hired by government officials to counter Marprelate's tracts. The result was some witty public dialogue as well as a moment in time when dramatists were engaged in topical political discourse.
