Example text

According to Christopher Haigh, one of the foremost revisionists, the bibliocentric religion of Protestantism was not so much responsible for the growth of literacy (the older view) as it was dependent upon the spread of literacy for its final triumph (Haigh 1993: 276). The newer research has not replaced older views but has qualified them and made us more aware of the diversity of religious practices and the importance of regional studies. If the process of Protestantization remains the central question in the historiography of the sixteenth century, the relationship between the Reformation and the Revolution remains a central issue for the seventeenth century.

Women in the upper ranks of society generally could read in the seventeenth century; apologetic about their writing, they usually wrote at a functioning level. Lady Margaret Hoby read not only John Foxe but also such Puritan clerics as Thomas Cartwright, William Perkins and Richard Greenham. The first Countess of Bridgewater had an extensive book collection that included plays and histories as well as devotional works (Huntington Library, Ellesmere 6495). During her widowhood from 1629 to 1636, the Puritan matriarch Lady Joan Barrington purchased several religious works, often multiple copies (for Religion and the Construction of the Feminine 29 example, Foxe’s Book of Martyrs) which she clearly meant to give as gifts.
