What sort of information did people in early modern England seek? In The Practical Renaissance: Information, Culture and the Quest for Knowledge in Early Modern England, Professor Seger explores the diffusion and reception of prescriptive publications over the 16th and 17th centuries. Published in an age of dynamic religious and political change, these texts demonstrate the universal desire for health and wealth, a fortified body, and an orderly household.
Donna Seger is Professor of Medieval & Early Modern History at Salem State University and author of the popular blog, Streets of Salem.
