The Iconography of Visual Culture examines the imagery of woodcuts and engravings in the early modern period revealing that there was a distinctive iconographical scheme that developed in English visual culture in response to Post-Reformation Protestantism. The need to make a distinction between the “”true”” religion of Protestantism and the “”false”” religion of England”s past heritage was essential in establishing a new faith which would eventually impact upon all levels of society. Visual expressions of piety, salvation, sin, martyrdom and anti-Catholicism supported and enhanced the textual and verbal polemical messages of Calvinism. The study adopts a multi-disciplinary approach drawing upon the disciplines of history, art history and education, including a discussion of pedagogical approaches to using the imagery in secondary school history classrooms.
