This chapter considers Oxford's alleged involvement in Catholic affairs. In a dispatch dated 11 January 1581, French ambassador Mauvissière recalled that Oxford became deeply involved in pro–Catholic conspiracies in April 1576. He claimed that upon returning from Italy, Oxford made profession of the Catholic faith together with some of his relatives among the nobility and his best friends, and had sworn and signed with them a declaration that they would do all they could for the advancement of the Catholic religion.
