This is the third instalment in Jan’s series of books on the relationship between literature, theology, and English Law. Her first book considered the relationship between the legal rules of evidence and narrative form, and her second book focused on literature’s preoccupation with justice and ethics. The new monograph, ‘Censorship and the Representation of the Sacred in Nineteenth-Century England,’ explores the legal regulation of cultural production. Whilst the Biblical sublime found expression in the visual arts, the epic, and the oratorio, the nineteenth-century public stage remained secular by force of precedent and law. This book explores the dismantling of the apparatus of censorship and the eventual return of sacred drama to English public theatres at the start of the twentieth century.
