Summary
This study explores the history of Puritanism and the history of reading, the importance of communal and public forms of reading in the practice of godly piety, in the long seventeenth century. It seeks to advance our understanding of Puritan or 'godly' culture by examining the place of reading within that culture between c.1580 and 1720. Andrew Cambers offers a revised understanding of the nature of Puritanism and of the practice and representation of reading during the period. Moving beyond existing interpretations, Godly Reading opens up fresh discussions and debates about the nature of early modern reading and religion--
