Sample text

Clergy exalted godly women as exemplars for both sexes, sons as well as daughters, and beyond the family, as models for members of the greater community. ’ Given examples of godliness or piety worthy of emulation, clergy chose texts and language that transcended gender. 37: ‘Marke the perfect man, and Behould him upright’. With reference to the text, Carter advised his audience to dismiss any distinction in gender: ‘Change but the sexe and make it woman, or take the word in its full latitude as it comprehends the woman’.

Fellow-minister Nicholas Guy eulogized and praised Gouge’s wife Elizabeth: ‘she most prudently and prouidently ordered the affairs of her house, whereby hee [her husband] had the more leisure to attend his publike function’ (Pieties Pillar, 1625). Such rhetoric, however, should not lead to the conclusion that women’s piety was a private matter relegated to a separate sphere. In economic, political and religious terms the early modern family was integral to society and state. Indeed, the state mandated and enforced (at least intermittently) religious uniformity, and contemporaries saw the patriarchal household as an analogy for the hierarchical state.
