Editorial Reviews


'This volume makes an excellent contribution to the field of religious and gender history, properly marking the revival of interest in religion within British cultural and social history that has been quietly developing over the past decade ... as a whole this book provides exactly what the field needs: a discussion of British Christianity which explores women's agency in their encounter with Christian discourses; which offers an interrogation of the categories of the sacred and the secular; and which examines the profound connections between (expansive and flexible) Christian cultures and the histories of sexuality, reform, feminism, the family and domesticity.' – Reviews in History

'Women, Gender and Religious Cultures in Britain, 1800-1940, should be read and used by anyone interested in nineteenth-century British women's history.' – Anglican and Episcopal History

'Morgan and deVries's collection...rethinks popular trends and assumptions in the scholarship of gender studies and religion, demanding a high level of intellectual rigor regarding topics that often encourage glib assumptions and simple dichotomies. Anyone doing work on gender and religion would profit from reading this book.' – Victorian Studies
