Women, Religion and Education in Early Modern England is a study of the nature and extent of the education of women in the context of both Protestant and Catholic ideological debates.
Examining the role of women both as recipients and agents of religious instruction, the author assesses the nature of power endowed in women through religious education, and the restraints and freedoms this brought.
'An excellent introduction to the recent literature dealing with its subject, while shedding valuable new light on the experience of women in the early modern period.' - Ecclesiastical History
