The politics of reproduction in the English reformation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Practices and beliefs surrounding women's reproductive bodies, in particular those concerning childbirth and reproduction, had religious significance in early modern England and were sites of reform in the Protestant Reformation. In this essay I suggest that the reimagining of women's reproductive bodies was a crucial part of the cultural changes that made England a Protestant nation.
