Orthodoxy and Heresy in Eighteenth-Century Society
Regina Hewitt and Pat Rogers (Eds.)
Changing Sex in Early-Modern Culture
Orthodoxy and Heresy in Eighteenth-Century Society uses the concept of "heresy" to gain insight into the value of social order in eighteenth-century England and France. By applying the vocabulary of religion to behaviors that might more usually be studies as "deviant," and contributors account for the complexity and vehemence of conflicts over right order played out in the literary, artistic, and political arenas of the age.
