Ultimately, Parsons's life and political career were products of the sixteenth century. Raised in the shadow of Tridentine Catholicism, political and religious compromise simply were not possible for him. This political biography, then, explains Parsons in terms of his single-minded devotion to the restoration of Catholicism in England. Parsons's place in history, like that of other failed activists, does not rest entirely upon his successes or failures. Instead, his legacy can be measured by the importance of his ideas in the context of late-sixteenth- and early-seventeenth-century England.
Those ideas, and the machinations they inspired, were ultimately an integral part of the ongoing struggle between Catholicism and Protestantism in religion and between constitutionalism and absolutism in politics.
