This chapter first considers Oxford's ‘Book of Prophecies’. Charles Arundel claimed that the book prophesied the date of the Queen's death and the identity of her male successor, and that Oxford compiled the book with his own hand under the illusion of demonic inspiration. The chapter then discusses the connection between Henry Howard's subsequent book, A Defensative and Oxford's book.
