Elizabeth White was an English seventeenth-century religious writer, whose single text, a little over twenty pages long, records her experience of marriage, childbirth, and spiritual crisis. Its publishing history demonstrates continuity between the Anglican church of the 1650s and the Great Awakening in America nearly a century later.
