Pamela's Prayer and the Politics of Ceremony

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper situates Eikon Basilike's appropriation of Pamela's Prayer within a generously drawn Sidney "circle" comprising the Eikon's compilers, imitators, and admirers. Reading the prayer alongside another of the Eikon's "borrowed" prayers, this one from Lewis Bayley's devotional bestseller, The Practice of Piety (1612), I explore the relevance of both source texts to debates within the Carolinian Church about the place of set prayers and bodily "ceremonies" in Protestant worship. In this context, the Eikon's use of Pamela's Prayer appears as far more than an attempt to co-opt Sidney's reputation in the service of the royalist cause. It is also an attempt to apply his broadly appealing Protestant aesthetic to divisive questions of church policy and practice. I argue that these questions share with Sidney's Arcadia an engagement with much deeper questions about the proper relationship of insides to outsides, bodies to souls, and signs to referents.
