The Works of Lucy Hutchinson: Volume II: Theological Writings and Translations

Elizabeth Clarke (Editor), David Norbrook (Editor), Jane Stevenson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This is the second volume in the four-volume edition of The Works of Lucy Hutchinson, the first-ever collected edition of the writings of the pioneering author and translator. This volume brings together for the first time the religious writings of Hutchinson (1620-81). She is well known for her classic narrative of the Civil War period, Memoirs of the Life of Colonel Hutchinson, and for her Biblical poem Order and Disorder; these writings lay out the theological underpinnings of those works, making it possible to chart the development of her ideas in detail. They go beyond the practical piety often expected of women writers, translating Latin texts and exploring the nature of theological knowledge. Some works are published here for the first time, others have not been available since 1817. Detailed introductions and commentaries make these writings fully accessible to non-specialists and offer comparisons with contemporaries like John Owen and John Milton.
