Reviews

"The Intellectual Culture of Puritan Women provides fifteen fascinating vignettes of prominent female thinkers. The editors do not attempt an over-arching definition of a Puritan, but each individual chapter justifies its subject's claim to that title, building up a composite picture of a formidable godly femininity." David Hawkes, Times Literary Supplement

"The end result is impressive: methodologically wide-ranging and interpretatively innovative, this collection offers genuinely new insight not only into the nature of Puritanism, and of women's role within the Puritan movement, but also into the position of women more generally (and thus the nature of patriarchy) in late Tudor and Stuart England" Tim Harris, The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms

"The influence of the widening scholarship of the last thirty years on early modern women writers is evident in all the essays in this collection, yet they succeed in finding fresh and inspiring perspectives into women's intellectual lives, often balancing biographical and literary interests. By looking closely at fourteen women, they succeed admirably in demonstrating that there is much more to know than we have so far assumed about Puritanism's support for women's intellectual culture." Anu Korhonen, Renaissance Quarterly
