This volume seeks to expand the scope of the study of the English Renaissance by examining the interpretations of both men and women who represent a range of ecclesiastical and political perspectives. The author rejects the claim that the radical prophetic writers and metaphysical poets of the 17th century drew inspiration from distinct biblical models. By drawing on the writings of various individuals, both radical and conformist, male and female, the author traces the shifting representations of the apocalyptic Bride and Temple over time.
