A volume is being put together that will examine the relationship between
classical and biblical ideas in Great Britain and Western Europe in the early
modern period (c1536-1702). We expect to have ten essays, each of between five
thousand and six thousand words. Submissions are welcome from scholars working
in all disciplines.

Interdisciplinary treatments are especially encouraged. All authors should
write in such a way that their work is accessible to academics working in other
disciplines.

Abstracts of 500-1000 words should be sent to John Newton
(j.g.newton_at_durham.ac.uk) or David Lindsay (davidaslindsay_at_hotmail.com) as soon
as possible, and no later than March 2004.

will not eschew the more traditional scholarly interest in Astell's
concerns about gender; rather, it aspires to reveal how Astell's
reflections on gender were always mediated through her diverse set of
