Women and Religion in Britain and Ireland: An Annotated Bibliography from the Reformation to 1993

With an emphasis on secondary sources in literature and social history, from both sides of the Atlantic, this bibliography helps define resources for this emerging field of study and will be useful to students and scholars in women's studies, religious studies, and history. It covers the period from the English Renaissance and Reformation to contemporary debates over women's ministries and the construction of a feminist theology, and is divided chronologically and topically. The bibliography follows developments in the Church of England and pays special attention to movements that have provided particular opportunities for women including the Quakers, Methodists, and the Salvation Army.
