Subject:        Elizabethan Underworld and the Occult

Two titles come to mind: Gamini Salgado, The Elizabethan Underworld
(1977) and Keith Thomas, Religion and the Decline of Magic (1971).

Any biographies on Christopher Marlowe give lots of info about
Walsingham's spy operations.  There is a very recent Marlowe work, whose
title I forget, which, while suspect with respect to Marlowe, gives all
the sordid details about Elizabethan spying.

I have the book at home, and will look up title and author for you.  You
can e-mail me personally at

Alan Haynes, _Invisible Power: The Elizabethan Secret Services 1570-1603
(1992)
Alison Plowden, _The Elizabethan Secret Service_ (1991)
John M. Archer, _Sovereignty and Intelligence: Spying and Court Culture
in the English Renaissance_ (1993)

To H.R.Greenberg

I would suggest Alan Haynes's Invisible Power.The Elizabethan Secret
Services 1570-1603, New York, St.Martin's Press, 1992 and John Michael
Archer's Sovereignty and Intelligence. Spying and Court Culture in the
English Renaissance, Stanford, Stanford U.P., 1993.I hope they may be
useful. Maria Concolato
