Fludd is a novel by Hilary Mantel. First published by Viking Press in 1989, it won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize that year.[1]

The novel is set in 1956, in Fetherhoughton, a fictional town somewhere on the moors of northern England. It centres on the convent and Roman Catholic church in the dreary isolated town and concerns the dramatic impact of the mysterious Fludd, who is apparently a curate sent by the bishop to assist Father Angwin, a priest who continues in his role despite privately having lost his faith.
