Some Wild Visions: Autobiographies by Female Itinerant Evangelists in Nineteenth-Century America

Voorkant
Oxford University Press, 12 dec. 2002 - 224 pagina's
This book is a study of seven autobiographies by women who defied the domestic ideology of nineteenth-century America by serving as itinerant preachers. Literally and culturally homeless, all of them used their autobiographies to construct, from an array of materials, plausible identities as women and Christians in an age that found them hard to understand.
