    Comprising a confession of faith, prayers and meditations, the 'Loose Papers' of Elizabeth Egerton (1626-1663), Countess of Bridgewater, were collected and published after her death in 1663. As well as a 'documentary edition' of the text, Travitsky provides an extraordinarily detailed study of Elizabeth's life, showing her to be 'an extremely privileged, personally venerated, yet paradoxically powerless and ultimately victimized seventeenth-century woman'.
