Summary
"Political Speaking Justified traces the development of the idea of female political authority in three women prophets of the English Revolution. In the tradition of the Hebrew prophets, these women - Eleanor Davies, Anna Trapnel, and Margaret Fell - believed that God called them to communicate his will to the leaders of the nation. They entered the public sphere intent on bringing about a godly order and, as part and parcel of this goal, they deemed it necessary to create a political realm in which women's voices could be heard. Theirs is a unique literary record that unites religious faith and devotion with an emerging set of secular desires and ambitions."--Jacket
