Domesticating the Reformation: Protestant Best Sellers, Private Devotion, and the Revolution of English Piety
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 2007 - Всего страниц: 449
This book rescues three little-known "bestsellers" of the English Reformation and employs them in an examination of intellectual and religious revolution. How did sixteenth-century English Protestant manuals of private devotion--often to be read aloud--stream continental theology into the domestic contexts of parish, school, and home? Patterson elucidates ideological programs presented in key texts in light of evolving patterns of public and private worship; she also considers the processes of transmission by which complex doctrinal debates were packaged for cultivating an "everyday" piety in a confusing age of inflammatory, politicized religion. It is in the most prosaic challenges of daily realities--from births to burials to praying for monarchs during cow milking, that the deepest opportunities lie for experiencing the divine. Intersecting issues of piety, rhetoric, and the devotional life of the home, this book brings to life reformists' endeavors to guide popular responses to the Protestant revolution itself.
