Researcher: Emily Vine Emily is an AHRC funded PhD student working on a Collaborative Doctoral Award at Queen Mary University of London and the Geffrye Museum of the Home. Her PhD research investigates ‘Religion and the home in London, 1600-1800’ and involves a cross-disciplinary approach, working with both the History and English departments at QMUL. “The Lady Hungerford’s Meditations upon the Beads” was creat- ed for Catholics who did not have access to rosary beads, allowing them to continue to participate in an important ritual of their faith in adverse circumstances.
