Piety, physic and prodigious abstinence (1996)

unapi

Description “The relation between these definitions of the scope of body and spirit and of the rights of physicians, priests and naturalists is well illustrated in some of the best publicized wonders of the 1660s. Such stories show how trust in individual accounts of strange phenomena was connected with the authority attributed to rival subjects, interpreters and healers. Such a case was that of Martha Taylor, a young Derbyshire woman whose spectacular fast and spiritual conversation between late 1667 and mid-1669 attracted the attention of a remarkable range of gentry, divines, physicians, philosophers and pilgrims.”
