Walsingham Elizabethan Spymaster & Statesman by Alan Haynes
Walsingham, Elizabeth’s spymaster had established the most extensive spy network the world had ever seen, placing secret agents throughout Europe, especially in the Catholic courts of Spain, Italy, and France, to ferret out Catholic plots against Elizabeth. He took an active part in the persecution of Catholics and, with the backing of William Cecil, entered Parliament in 1563. Joining the Privy Council in 1573, he was knighted in 1577. The ousted Catholics championed Mary Queen Scots. Fearful of an uprising, Elizabeth offered Mary sanctuary against the Scottish reformers and then betrayed and imprisoned her.
