A good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.
Domestic spaces lay at the centre of the lives of early modern English men and women. Yet their liminality has often been under-investigated, if not underestimated, by scholars. On the one hand, households served as a hubbub of familial and filial activity (housewarmings, births, conventicles, fast/feast days and reading groups), on the other hand as sites of the foreign and fatal (burglaries, squatting, murders, possessions, and devastating fires). The house was as permeable as it was penetrable. This despite attempts to ward off or perturb would be intruders: via witches’ marks, locks, bars, fences, guard dogs, community patrols and the ‘watch’.
