Abstract:
This thesis researches the place of the Geneva Bible in the history of early modern female devotional reading and writing. The Geneva Bible was the most popular household bible during the Elizabethan, and some part of the Jacobean, period, enjoying extremely wide in circulation. This study emphasises the centrality of the Bible to the development of reading styles in this period. The Geneva Bible altered devotional reading practices, and confirmed the place of women in Protestant reading culture.
