Women as Agents Thus far we have considered girls and women as recipients of education provided by others, usually men. The question now has to be asked how far and in what ways did women act as agents in their own and others’ education. Women’s diaries provide first-hand evidence of books women actually read. Anne Venn, daughter of the regicide Colonel John Venn, kept a diary ‘written in her own hand and found in her closet after her death,’ in which she noted: I got a book called Mr Rogers Evidences and another called The Touchstone of True Grace and another called None But Christ and divers others .

Meditation in the privacy of their own closet was a further practice which enabled women to educate their minds and their emotions, Baxter’s Saints Everlasting Rest (1650 and many editions) being one of the most popular among many expositions of the practice (Charlton 1999: 171–7).
