Read in the context of emerging Nineteenth-century women's theology, Rossetti's devotional prose shows a distinct preference for the 'wisdom texts' of scripture, and foreshadows the work of leading feminist theologians today. This volume disputes the assumption that Rossetti was a follower of Keble and Pusey, and shows how her dissatisfaction with the male-dominated call to celibacy led her to reject their notions of worldliness, and to form a closer bond with the physical world and the body.
