This book charts the fascination with the mystical marriage, its implication in the various political conflicts of the seventeenth century, and its appeal to seventeenth-century writers, particularly women. First survey of a massive textual phenomenon in the seventeenth century Develops a useful, detailed historicist methodology Will have significant impact on research in the interpretation of early modern texts Author's profile in women's manuscript writing Covers broader topics such as Biblical commentary, popular Puritan literature and court writing '...this is a book of immense value for literary and religious historians alike, subtle in analysis and rigorous in research.' - Sarah Apetrei, Keble College Oxford, Journal of Ecclesiastical History JV
