Biblical reflections of Christina Rossetti

Letter and Spirit : notes on the Commandments. Christina Rossetti, London : Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, [1883]. New College Library, Unclassified Sequence, C5/b5

At this week’s Biblical Studies Research Seminar in the School of Divinity, the speaker is  Dr Alison Jack,  on“Reading the Parable of the Prodigal Son with Christina Rossetti”.

Down in the depths of New College Library’s Stack II, I found this slim volume by Christina Rossetti, Letter and Spirit, or, Notes on the Commandments.

Although better known in the twentieth century for her poetry such as Goblin Market and A Birthday, and for her associations with the Pre-Raphaelite group of painters and writers,  in her later life Christina Rossetti also produced more sombre devotional writings.
