Symposium: Women and the Covenant of Salvation in Seventeenth-Century Britain: A Visual Study
Come join us for the latest Knox College Graduate History Students’ Symposium on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at 3 pm eastern time via Zoom, with Knox College’s own Dr. Amanda Pullan!
Women and the Covenant of Salvation in Seventeenth-Century Britain: A Visual Study
The household has been an important focus for measuring the reception of new religious ideas. In seventeenth-century Britain, new theological ideas including the covenant of salvation and predestination are known to have impacted the religious activities of the household. Literacy had increased as well as the dissemination of print, yet we are often limited in our knowledge of how individuals translated and applied these ideas to daily life. This lecture will consider how some women in their domestic education, using embroidery, participated in contemporary debates on salvation.
Dr. Amanda Pullan is a historian of visual culture, textiles, the Bible, and early modern Europe. She is a sessional lecturer at Knox College, University of Toronto.
