Description:

Paperback. 208 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.3in. x 0.5in.Diane Watt sets aside the conventional hiatus between the medieval and early modern periods in her study of womens prophecy, following the female experience from medieval sainthood to radical Protestantism. The English women prophets and visionaries whose voices are recovered here all lived between the twelfth and the seventeenth centuries and claimed, through the medium of trances and eucharistic piety, to speak for God. They include Margery Kempe and the medieval visionaries, Elizabeth Barton (the Holy Maid of Kent), the Reformation martyr Anne Askew and other godly women described in John Foxes Acts and Monuments, and Lady Eleanor Davies as an example of a woman prophet of the Civil War. The strategies women devised to be heard and read are exposed, showing that through prophecy they were often able to intervene in the religious and political discourse of the their times: the role of Gods secretary gave them the opportunity to act and speak autonomously and publicly.
