Collection on Religion and Nineteenth-Century American Women Writers
Embracing the complexities of religion in nineteenth-century women’s culture—both its repressive and revolutionary potentiality—this edited collection seeks to articulate how female authors deployed, revised, challenged, and, in some cases, rejected conventional theologies and doctrines. Exploring the greatly diverse expressions of, reactions to, and uses for religion in women’s texts of the era, this volume will explore how female authors repurposed religious sentiments for their own spiritual, cultural, or political ends. Without neglecting repressive elements of institutionalized religion, this text will emphasize the subversive and sometimes empowering treatment of religion in the work of nineteenth-century American women writers.
