Meyers, Debra A. Religion, Women and the Family in Maryland, 1634-1713. Ph.D. diss., University of Rochester, 1997.
Annotation / Notes: Explores the mentality of seventeenth century Maryland women by studying over 5,000 wills, which give expression to beliefs about property, relationships, gender roles, and religion. Meyer found that religious beliefs affected the values and behavior of colonial Marylanders. For example, Calvinists viewed women as subordinates and Free Will Christians considered women as trusted peers. Religion is a "crucial variable" in understanding early modern societies.
