Focusing on Tudor and Jacobean women’s religious literary activities, this volume explores the complex ways in which texts, authors and patrons responded to key religious, political, social and literary developments. The collection highlights the vitality of neglected genres such as prayers, meditations and translations, and it stresses the importance of women’s engagement with both Catholic and Reformed religion during the period.
