Subject: Q: Martext/Marprelate
Many footnotes on Sir Oliver Martext (AYLI) say he is perhaps a reference to
the fictitious puritan pamphleteer Martin Marprelate---this seems very
far-fetched to me. I am reading a book on the latter now, but does anybody know
any persuasive, or at least semi-persuasive articles that pursue and explore
the connection ('old' or 'new' historical approaches welcome). Thanks, Chris
