Four theological issues central to the Reformation are discussed: the nature of justification- the role of the Church and the sacraments- the problem of faith and works- and the question of the Bible and its interpretation. Examining the religious structures and language that inform de Navarres poems and plays, Ferguson draws conclusions regarding the authors religious beliefs as they are mirrored in her poetry.

This text should be of interest to students of French Renaissance literature.
