Reviews

"There can be no better refutation of the charge that women's studies is a mere voguish interest than this recent _ and typical _ product of Dale Johnson's scholarship. . . . draws on a wide variety of sources and arranges them so as to disclose the shifting counterpoint of two centuries' debate over the place of women in English church and society. . . . a superb resource!" - Religious Studies Review

". . . very much to be welcomed. . . . The concluding notes and bibliography are helpful to those wanting to read further in this crucial but neglected area." - Journal of the United Reformed Church History Society

"Anthologies of historical documents, however useful, rarely make absorbing reading. Dale A. Johnson's collection of writings on the role of women in English religious life is a notable exception." - Church History

"Although clearly intended for religious studies courses, this anthology could also be a useful addition to general courses in British history." - Albion

". . . a documentary history which many will find of considerable utility." - Journal of Ecclesiastical History
