8, fols. 2 . . The Christians Daily Wake . . The Spirits Office Towards Believers . . Mr Crow on the Lord’s Supper . . that small piece of Mr Flavell’s entitled A Token for Mourners’. The reading of Mary Rich, Countess of Warwick, included Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, the sermons and writings of Jeremy Taylor, the poems of George Herbert and Richard Baxter’s Crucifying of the World by the Cross of Christ, her favourite book (Charlton 1999: 180–7). Lady Catherine Gell was a regular correspondent of Richard Baxter, and confessed to him in one of her letters ‘many a time Women and Education 15 I goe about my house among my servants when I had rather locke myself in a roome alone amongst my books.

And advize you to exercise youre owne knowledge therein by instructing your children and servants. (5–7, 90–1; the text was not published until 1817) In keeping with her last comment, her advice was thoroughly orthodox, as was that of Lady Anne Halkett in her Instructions for Youth, ‘for the use of those young noblemen and gentlemen’ whose education was committed to her. Letters from mothers to their children often included similar advice, alongside the usual news of family illness and good health and considerate enquiries about the health and behaviour of the recipient (Charlton 1999: 234–7).

Suzanne Trill argues that women involved in religion brought ‘to the fore’ the inherent ‘instabilities’ in the gendered category of woman (Trill 1996: 31). Anne Askew, a Protestant martyred in the 1540s, and Margaret Clitherow, an Elizabethan recusant, also martyred, each came to represent a model of religious activism, influence, courage and insight, far different from the model of passivity and obedience extolled in advice literature. The idealized construction of the patriarchal family in the early modern period mirrored similar ambiguities.
