Abstract :
The devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus peaked in popularity in England in the half century before the Reformation. It was characterized by brief invocations of Jesus, which in its written form was often abbreviated to three letters. Summarizes the development and extent of the cult in England, reviewing for the first time objects marked with the sacred trigram, the earliest of which dates from the late 13th c. Examines the material evidence for the fate in the century after the Reformation of what was ostensibly a cult acceptable to Protestants. By considering both what survives - whether remaining above ground or retrieved from the soil - and the written records of those that have disappeared, presents a more holistic 'material cultural' rather than a merely 'archaeological' account. Despite the invocation of Jesus on a variety of objects being so widespread, they appear to be linked to the medieval cult of the Holy Name. Very few items datable to the second half of the 16th c. are marked with the sacred trigram. About 1600 it re-emerged in a new form as a symbol of Catholic recusancy and of Arminian revival within the established church. ;
