During the crucial century of civil, religious and territorial war between 1559 and 1659, the church province of Cambrai at the southern border of the Habsburg Low Countries developed into an important printing centre for Catholicism, even if the presses were introduced rather late compared to printing centres such as Antwerp and Lyon. Simultaneously, it hosted Catholic refugees from different regions, such as the British Isles, Ireland, France and eventually the Dutch Republic, which turned the printing production into a multilingual and multicultural enterprise. Hence, Catholic print culture in Cambrai was not only impressive in terms of numbers, but also because of its remarkable variety in social and regional backgrounds of patrons, printers, booksellers, authors, translators and censors. This contribution will identify the configurations in which transregional networks came into being within the context of the local printing press
