Klappentext

Excerpt from The Lives of Women Saints of Our Contrie of England: Also Some Other Liues of Holie Women Written by Some of the Auncient Fathers, (C. 1610 1615)

Twice in the earlier English (and no other) literature, was an attempt made to put together the lives of female Saints by Bokenham in verse, and in the present collection - a peculiar instance Of the veneration which the weaker part Of mankind, especially in its godlike members, enjoys in this island. But if Bokenham's collection is limited to some (13) Of the most common Saints, the present collection takes a far wider range. It consists Of two equal parts: (1) 'the lives of the women Saints of our contrie of England,' (2) 'some other lives Of holia women written by some of the auncient Fathers.' The first part is preceded by a long introduction, 'some Notes before the, lines,' on the questions why God has provided Saints, and why the Saints of Scotland and Ireland are numbered amongst the Saints Of England in this collection, and then treat ing Of virginity by extracts from St. Cyprian and Ierome, and giving some specimens Of true widowhood in St. Ierome's time (marcella and Paula) and from the Bible (iudith and Anna prophetissa).
