1st Edition

Margaret W. Ferguson
September 27, 2018

Elizabeth Cary (c.1585-1639) was an accomplished scholar of languages and theology. Her considerable strength of character was demonstrated by her public conversion to Catholicism in 1625 thereby creating an irrevocable rift in her marriage and her family. Her biography, written by her daughter,...

1st Edition

John N. King
July 25, 1996

Anne Askew (1521-1546) was accused of heresy because of her denial of the Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation and ritual of mass. These two works provide an extremely rare autobiographical account of heresy interrogations, torture, trial and conviction. Her manuscripts were smuggled out of...

Anne Wheathill: Printed Writings 1500–1640: Series 1, Part One, Volume 9

Patrick Cullen
July 25, 1996

The only reliable clues available about Anne Wheathill’s life are those contained in her work, published in 1584. She describes herself as a gentlewoman, unmarried and a Protestant. She also refers to herself as poor and it has been suggested that she was one of a handful of women in Elizabeth I’...

Katherine Parr: Printed Writings 1500–1640: Series 1, Part One, Volume 3

1st Edition

Janel Mueller
July 25, 1996

The sixth and last queen of Henry VIII, and friend of Anne Askew, Katherine Parr (c.1513-1548) has a threefold claim to recognition for her contribution to the literary culture of her time. First, as a loving and adept stepmother to the royal children, who took a directive role in their education;...

Margaret Tyler: Printed Writings 1500–1640: Series 1, Part One, Volume 8

1st Edition

Kathryn Coad
July 25, 1996

The biography of Margaret Tyler remains speculative. It is known that she served the Howard family (Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk) in some capacity. Her level of education has been described as ’amazing’ for a woman who was outside of the aristocracy and possibly a middle-class servant. Her...
