Abstract:

"This anthology presents the works of eighteen early modern Englishwomen addressing the biblical story of the Fall from the Book of Genesis. The texts, many of which are available in a modern edition for the first time, are fully annotated and introduced for use by students and researchers alike. In addition, the anthology includes supplementary materials that these writers would have known intimately, such as the marriage ceremony from The Book of Common Prayer and the account of the Fall in both the Geneva and Authorized (King James) versions, as well as a selected bibliography of scholarly works."--Publisher description.
