ABSTRACT
Lucy Robartes's brief discourse, 'A meditation uppon the Lords day', was composed on a blank page at the back of her husband's family Geneva Bible sometime after 1633, in three instalments. It deals explicitly with the biblical basis for a puritan defence of the Sabbath. Studied in the light of this Bible's annotations and James I's 'Book of Sports' (1618) held in the library of the Robartes's family seat of Lanhydrock (Cornwall), Lucy Robartes's 'Meditation' sheds fascinating light on the way in which a relatively unknown early modern woman writer interacted with a key contemporary controversy of political and theological importance.
