Annotation / Notes: A case study of Maryland as colony and state to determine why some states adopted the penitentiary earlier than others; whether the rise of the penitentiary was a revolutionary development; and whether the diverse paths to the penitentiary produced diverse forms.

Annotation / Notes: A comparison of the experiences of two Catholic colonial women - Jane Doyne, an elite woman from the lower Western Shore, and Jenny, an enslaved woman on the Eastern Shore. Roman Catholicism was a significant part of their lives, and as women they served an important role in maintaining and transmitting the Catholic faith. However, their different status had an impact on their religious experiences.
