Abstract

This chapter links the devotional translations made by Elizabeth I when still a Princess to a pre-Reformation tradition of Christ-centred piety, to Katherine Parr's Lamentacion of a Sinner and to the influence on Parr of Lady Margaret Beaufort and the Catholic martyr John Fisher. I argue that Parr and Elizabeth 'protestantized' and 'feminized' the medieval tradition within which they were writing and that their modifications to it had an important influence on many later sixteenth-century and seventeenth-century English writers.
