  Faith and the Body: Victorian Evangelicals
  "Occasionally peeping inside the leaves to see that Venus's arm was not broken, [Sue] entered with her heathen load into the most Christian city in the country by an obscure street running parallel to the main one, and round a corner to the side door of the establishment to which she was attached. Her purchases were taken straight up to her own chamber, and she at once attempted to lock them in a box that was her very own property; but finding them too cumbersome she wrapped them in large sheets of brown paper, and stood them on the floor in a corner." – Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure, 1895
