Elisabeth's Manly Courage: Testimonials and Songs of Martyred Anabaptist Women in the Low Countries

By Hermina Joldersma; Louis Grijp | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

With the development of women's history over the last thirty years, a number of texts by and about women in the early modern period have been discovered, edited, translated, and published. This has deepened our understanding of women's experience in the past and also allowed us to view major historical changes such as the Renaissance and the Reformation in new ways. This volume is a contribution to this growing body of literature.

This book is part of the series Reformation Texts with Translation (1350–1650) (RTT) published by Marquette University Press, Andrew Tallon, Director. RTT are brief theological and religious works from the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries translated into English usually for the first time. Three series within RTT are in production: Women of the Reformation, which I edit and of which this text is the third volume; Biblical Studies, edited by Dr. Franz Posset, which currently includes three volumes; and Theology and Piety, edited by Dr. Ian Levy, which is in the planning stage. Prof. Kenneth Hagen is the General Editor.

All RTT texts feature the original language and English translation on facing pages, allowing readers direct access to primary sources as well as making the texts available in English. Several of the volumes, including this one, also contain reproductions of the original manuscript or printed texts, giving readers the opportunity to see how these texts would have looked to early modern readers. In this volume, the reproductions include musical notations, a very unusual part of Reformation songbooks. Thus “Elisabeth's manly courage”: Testimonials and Songs of Martyred Anabaptist Women in the Low Countries contains texts that will be of interest to scholars in a wide number of fields: Women's history and literature, the history of Anabaptism and the Radical Reformation, Dutch literature, music history, and the history of popular religion and spirituality. The stories of faith, perseverance, and dignity told in these songs, letters, and documents may be an inspiration to a wider circle of readers as well.
