         Order Book

Penitent Brothellers examines the religious perspectives of Jacobean dramatist Thomas Middleton, focusing on scenes of repentance and conversion in his city comedies. Using Middleton's rarely studied pamphlet The Two Gates of Salvation, Heller establishes the Calvinist theological background for the repentances. The study also examines Middleton's portrayal of sodomy in his satires.
