This is a reference work which rescues from oblivion the names and literary production of women who, far from belonging to what is generally considered as the canon, emerged either from the spiritual solitude of Spanish Catholic nuns' cells or from the religious meetings, evangelizing travels or austere lives of Anglicans, Protestants, Quakers, Wesleyans, Baptists or Dissenting Presbyterians. This book offers a different insight into the works of those religious women from that of the women-writer guides and dictionaries published so far. In this sense, rather than discussing authors alphabetically, in terms of their biographies, this work is structured in four sections which correspond to four inclusive literary genres - prose, poetry, drama and translation. Each of those sections is, in its turn, subdivided into different subgenres.
