Question from Linda - Parr's "Lamentations of a Sinner"

Is there a translation or copy of the book written by Queen Catherine Parr, Lamentations of a Sinner ?


  1. You can find it in Janel Mueller's Katherine Parr: Complete Works and Correspondence.

  2. It is also available in facsimile form, complete with the original printing style (what some people call "Gothic script"), in the book series "Attending to Early Modern English Women." The series is in multiple volumes, part of which includes "Confessional Writings." Both of Parr's books can be found within. Most university libraries have the series, and someone has been selling individual volumes on eBay lately.
