Protestant Autobiography in the Seventeenth-Century Anglophone World

Kathleen Lynch

  • First new historicized account of the seventeenth-century Protestant conversion narrative in a generation
  • Examines major works such as John Bunyan's Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners (1660) and Richard Baxter's Reliquiae Baxterianae (1696)
  • Explores the social role of religious identities
  • By focusing on the reception of first-person narratives, shows that the privileging of 'interiority' was itself a historical development
