With a minty freshness, we are proud to present part 8 of Hannah More’s Essays on Various Subjects, one I’ve been looking forward to reading with you. It’s the essay On the Importance of Religion to the Female Character. Ms. More lived in the 18th and 19th centuries, living life as a writer, philosopher, poet, abolitionist, and evangelical moralist. For more information about Ms. More and this text, you can listen to episode 60 for a very brief overview, or you can read Karen Swallow Prior’s biography Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More from 2014.

Come back next time for our final reading from Hannah More's essay collection!
