In 1805 Susannah Middleton travelled with her husband, Captain Robert Middleton,
to Gibraltar where he was to run the naval dockyard. Abroad for the first time,

Brown’s rendering of ‘pious femininity’ placed power in
the hands of central authorities such as the Church and the state,
casting individual women as inert victims of social control. 58 There has, though, been

I say that they are the two daughters of the horseleech, of which we learn in Proverbs 30[:15]: ‘The horseleech hath two daughters that say: Bring, bring’. They do not take the place of the apostles, since all of the apostles were bishops. Many of [those cardinals], though, are not priests.
