Reviews

Rachel Cope and Zachary McLeod Hutchins have done a major service to scholars of early American history, women's history, and Quakerism in reclaiming for us Quaker minister Elizabeth Webb. Her writings provide us with a marvelous view into the spiritual and interior life of a remarkable woman equally at home on both sides of the colonial Atlantic. --Thomas Hamm, author of The Quakers in America This extraordinary collection of mostly unpublished Quaker documents fills a major gap in early American writings by women and is a major contribution to early American archival scholarship. Webb's keen observations range from personal narratives, letters, and travelogues to a unique commentary on the book of Revelation, and the introduction beautifully situates these documents in their historical and intellectual contexts. --Reiner Smolinski, author of The Threefold Paradise of Cotton Mather A very important volume, bringing to light a forgotten Quaker minister, adding to the new and necessary scholarship on Quaker women's writings, and helping rewrite our understanding of apocalyptic thought within eighteenth-century Quakerism. It is required reading for all Quaker studies scholars. --Ben Pink Dandelion, author of The Quakers: A Very Short Introduction
