Katherine Sutton’s Experiences (1663), the printer’s device and the making of devotion
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This essay examines the social and material production (rather than just the literary or spiritual exercise) of devotional identities. By showcasing Katherine Sutton’s Particular Baptist conversion account A Christian Woman’s Experiences (1663) as a highly crafted and visually sophisticated product, this essay adduces a lively interaction between what might be described as the ‘physicality’ of the text and the model of godly selfhood that it advanced. In doing so, this essay reveals how materially and socially imbricated devotional polemics were, pointing to the religious communities (including those of printers and printing houses) that forged them.
