Anne Askew Printed Writings 1500-1640: Series 1, Part One, Volume 1 Synopsis

Anne Askew (1521-1546) was accused of heresy because of her denial of the Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation and ritual of mass. These two works provide an extremely rare autobiographical account of heresy interrogations, torture, trial and conviction. Her manuscripts were smuggled out of England to John Bale on the Continent who edited and published them in 1545 and 1546 respectively.

Anne Askew Printed Writings 1500-1640: Series 1, Part One, Volume 1 Press Reviews

The Early Modern Englishwoman: 'This series, splendidly produced in hardback... is certainly a series with a mission: to supplement the burgeoning appearance of literary critical and historical works on early modern women with editions of primary texts by and about women...Even in its early stages, The Early Modern Englishwoman fills a noticable gap in the market by providing primary texts in an accessible form that is affordable for most institutional libraries...The Early Modern Englishwoman project is ambitious and courageous, and I hope to see it flourish alongside and complement other projects in this field.' Renaissance Studies, Vol. 13, No. 4
