My new book project titled: Dissenting Daughters: Early Modern Dutch Women’s Engagement in Political and Religious Disputes, highlights women’s contributions to the spread of the Reformed faith across Europe from 1550-1700, by detailing their teachings, efforts to convert unbelievers, organization of informal church services, participation in international debate, and encouragement of their fellow Calvinists abroad.
