This chapter asks what happened to the political and spiritual languages of women in the sects at the regicide, through an exploration of the published texts of Elizabeth Poole. The chapter continues the discussion of the political implications of printed texts emerging from the sectarian struggles of the 1640s, tracing the political languages and positions of sectaries responding to the regicide. In examining Elizabeth Poole's place in the controversies, this chapter addresses the complexity of women's relationship to the figural languages and print debate which emerged in response to that event. In this story of Poole, prominence is given to the radical publishers Giles and Elizabeth Calvert, the Baptist minister John Pendarves and his wife Thomasine, her minister William Kiffin and his old associate, John Lilburne. The chapter asks the twin questions of who bound Poole to politics, and what were the implications of her spoken, written, and published interventions.

Keywords:   political language, spiritual language, regicide, Elizabeth Poole, sectarian struggles, Giles Calvert, Elizabeth Calvert, John Pendarves, Thomasine Pendarves, William Kiffin
