Joanne Paul on Anne Dowriche and the French Revolution

Joanne Paul talks to Helen about Anne Dowriche. Dowriche was a 16th century writer, usually classified as a pious writer. Joanne casts her instead as a deeply political writer, and explains how her commentaries on the wars of religion were a rare example of political writing from a Tudor woman.
