Adrian Streete is Professor of Early Modern English Literature and Religion. He works on the relationship between literature and religious, political, and philosophical thought in the period 1500 to 1700. Adrian is the author of two monographs, Apocalypse and Anti-Catholicism in Seventeenth-Century English Drama (Cambridge University Press, 2017), and Protestantism and Drama in Early Modern England (Cambridge University Press, 2009; paperback ed. 2011). He is the editor of Early Modern Drama and the Bible: Contexts and Readings, 1570-1625 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), and his co-edited volumes include Filming and Performing Renaissance History (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011), and The Edinburgh Companion to Shakespeare and the Arts (Edinburgh University Press, 2011). For reviews, see below under 'Additional Information'.

In 2019 he begins a two year Leverhulme Research Fellowship for his new project, 'Polemical Laughter in English Literary Culture, c.1500-1700'. From 2019 to 2021, Adrian will also be directing a RSE funded Network on 'New Approaches to Catholicism and Literature in 21st Century Scotland' that will bring together teachers, academics, and public bodies. See the project website here: https://catholicismliteraturescotland.home.blog Previously he held a Leverhulme Research Fellowship (2010-2012) which funded his 2017 CUP book on apocalypse, anti-Catholicism, and drama; he has also won funding from the AHRC. In addition to his new projects, Adrian is working on a book about Shakespeare and religion.

He is an experienced PhD supervisor (and examiner) and has successfully supervised eight students to completion. A number of his former students hold academic posts in the UK, Ireland, and Holland, and have published books with presses such as Oxford University Press, Palgrave, Manchester University Press, and Bloomsbury (see below). He is always happy to discuss projects with potential PhD students. He also established and convenes the new MLitt in Medieval and Early Modern English Literature and Culture and welcomes enquires about the programme.  

Adrian completed his PhD in 2001 at the University of Stirling under the supervision of Professor John Drakakis and Professor N.H. Keeble. From 2003 to 2014, he was Lecturer, then Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Queen's University, Belfast. He joined English Literature at Glasgow in 2014. He has given plenary lectures, papers, and public talks at numerous conferences in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Romania, Italy, America, and Canada, as well as at the Globe in London and on BBC radio. In November 2017 he curated an exhibition to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation called ‘Seeing the Reformation: Religion and the Printed Image in Early Modern Europe’, a collaboration with Archives and Special Collections at the University of Glasgow.

He regularly reviews for presses such as Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and Palgrave Macmillan, and for journals such as Shakespeare Quarterly, Studies in English Literature, Renaissance Drama, Shakespeare, and English. He has also acted as an external grant reviewer for the European Commission (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowships/Horizon 2020), the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). He is an elected Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and an invited member of the JISC Historic Books Advisory Board.

Additional Information

Selected Reviews

Reviews of Apocalypse and Anti-Catholicism in Seventeenth-Century English Drama (Cambridge University Press, 2017):

‘Its comprehensiveness is staggering: en route to close reading particular plays, Streete provides numerous examples and quotations from a variety of contemporaneous plays, poems, speeches, and sermons, making it the most crossgeneric monograph this reader has seen and enjoyed. Streete’s sensitivity and command of early modern culture is unparalleled … [his] ability to trace ripples of fear through his encyclopaedic grasp of the period’s publishing history makes his argument virtually airtight.’ The Review of English Studies

‘meticulously researched...A finely detailed and instructive study of how political and religious discourses are reconfigured in the language, plot and personation of drama … an excellent resource that will propel further scholarly interest.’ The Seventeenth Century

'this is a major work of early modern scholarship and it will prove to be invaluable to anyone working in the fields of religious controversy, religio-political drama, the wider religious and political culture of seventeenth-century  Britain, or Protestant Britain's relationship with its Roman Catholic neighbours, and with the cross-denominational application of apocalyptic thought.' British Catholic History   

'Streete makes a telling case for using seventeenth-century drama as an important source - a very special one at that - for the study of seventeenth-century politics and religion and their frequent interactions as well as for the development of 'Englishness'. His many perceptive interpretative suggestions and alternative readings of the selected plays also demonstrate the value, indeed the necessity, of a firmly grounded interdisciplinary approach to the subject matter under discussion both at the macro- and micro levels. Apocalypse and Anti-Catholicism makes a good companion piece to the same author's earlier study of Protestantism and Drama in Early Modern England (Cambridge, 2009). Streete has carved out a special niche for himself in this field.' Literature and History

'It is always a pleasure to read a book which makes your brain race with ideas and causes you to re-evaluate your own approach to the subject. [...] a provocative account of the various roles which anti-Catholic imagery played in the public sphere in early modern England which wears its learning lightly. [...] This study has the potential to make a much larger contribution to our understanding of the roles of anti-Catholicism in English culture between the reigns of Henry VIII and William III. [...] Catholics may have moved from monopoly to minority over the course of the sixteenth century, but that they were not a spent political, religious, or cultural force is surely part of the reason that anti-Catholicism had the potency to articulate multiple views in the public sphere which Streete's superb study shows it to have done.' Anti-Popery in British History AHRC Network Blog, https://antipopery.com/blog/ 

'[A] fascinating study [...] This meticulously researched book not only demonstrates the prevalence of apocalyptic and anti-catholic rhetoric in early modern drama but also persuasively argues for a more nuanced reading of rhetoric that has often been dismissed by scholars as hysterical and bigoted.' The Year's Work in English Studies 

Reviews of Early Modern Drama and the Bible: Contexts and Readings, 1570-1625 (Palgrave, 2012):

‘At a time when it is fashionable to write and read religion out of, or at least minimize its impact on, the culture of earlier epochs, this study stands as a useful corrective, reminding us of the Bible’s elevated position in early modern literature and drama, and its capacity to navigate between the two.’ Modern Language Review

‘Adrian Streete has done an excellent job as editor... He begins the collection with a well-argued introduction that leaves little doubt that one cannot study the early modern stage without acknowledging the influence that the Bible had over both the society in which the plays were written, performed, and printed and the playwrights who were composing the works.’ English

‘an excellent body of work that provides a valuable service. In making available to scholars of drama in the early modern period the latest research in this area the book suggests new directions and covers plays that do not always receive the attention that they deserve or require.’ Renaissance Studies

Reviews of Protestantism and Drama in Early Modern England (Cambridge University Press, 2009):

‘One of the most thought-provoking and innovative books of the year’. Studies in English Literature

‘Streete’s methodology … is remarkably fruitful and compelling. … Protestantism and Drama offers a more complete and nuanced picture of the early modern subject than has been offered before.’ Renaissance Quarterly

‘He has an uncommon gift for taking theology on its own terms, no matter how arcane or fanciful… should help invigorate future scholarship concerned with the complex relations between theater and theology.’ Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England

‘rewarding and timely insights into how the early modern English faced the rise of Calvinism. The author has entered into his subject with zeal, and he illuminates the tortured nuances of Calvinist experience, in particular the abyss of self-doubt, while building a finely textured historical perspective.’ Religion and the Arts

‘Streete’s account is extremely nuanced, given that theology is not his field. (How many literary critics of the era could offer an extended discussion of the extra Calvinisticum?) Most significantly, Streete recognizes and emphasizes the intensely christological focus of Reformation theology…In addition to its important implications for those working at the crossroads of theology and theater, this book provides a degree of historical corroboration to the thesis advanced over the past decade by the emerging school of Radical Orthodoxy.’ International Journal of Systematic Theology

‘a deeply-researched, enlightening study, one that calls to mind vital ideas of the time. Indeed, the book would be well worth reading, by students of the period and by seasoned scholars, who might like to refresh or extend their knowledge of the Reformation’s complex ideologies.’ Shakespeare Newsletter

‘provides an innovative, articulate account of the metamorphosis of the figure of Christ… Recommended.’ Choice Reviews Online
