French, Anna L (2013) Raising Christian children in early modern England: Salvation, education and the family. Theology, 116 (2). pp. 93-102. ISSN 0040-571XFull text not available from this repository.
Changes in prescribed doctrine, through the removal of the direct association between baptism and salvation, created much ambiguity surrounding child salvation in post-Reformation England. Despite this, Protestant religion provided a constructive and positive framework for raising the young, set out in a range of family advice manuals, written by Protestant clerics. Within this framework, ideal models of behaviour were narrated for both parents and children. Such idealized narratives provide us with a glimpse of what kind of behaviour was expected of both parents and children in this period, and also what kind of world these families inhabited.
