Subject: 	Christenings and Baptisms

Colleagues:

I would like to compile a list of Elizabethan and Jacobean works that 
deal with christenings and baptisms. For the moment, I am not looking 
for theological or liturgical treatises. I am looking for scenes in any 
plays, lyric poems, controversial literature (Foxe's ACTS AND 
MONUMENTS?), anything in Spenser's or Donne's works, dissident 
pamphlets, parodies, woodcuts, and even any visual representations. I am 
familiar with the christening scene in Thomas Middleton's A CHASTE MAID 
IN CHEAPSIDE, so that title does not have to be sent, but I would 
welcome as many leads as possible. To spare Hardy some work, please send 
these to me offlist at
