Let Her Speak for Herself: Nineteenth-Century Women Writing on the Women of Genesis

Synopsis

The women of Genesis - Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel - intrigued and informed the lives of nineteenth-century women.

They communicated their readings of Genesis using diverse genres ranging from poetry to commentary.
