On December 1, 1613, almost exactly 400 years ago, King James I of England ordered a ritual burning of Suarez's work Defensio fidei in front of Saint Paul's Cathedral As Lorenz so eloquently states, "Suarez's book landed in England like a bomb, not only challenging Royalist claims that James's power was directly derived from God but also threatening to undermine the king's authority over the bodies and souls of his subjects" (1-2).

While Foresti's De plurimis claris selectisque mulieribus (1497), a massive collection of biographies emulating and expanding Boccaccio's text both in structure and methodology (visually supported by woodcuts, of which Kolsky's book includes some pertinent examples) is ultimately "uncomfortable with [women's] achievements" (125) and falis back on debasing stereotypes and a dogmatic insistence on the superiority of Christian women over pagan ones, Equicola's De mulieribus and Strozzi's Defensio mulierum (both 1501) make an uncommon yet powerful case for women's equal participation in selected court circles.
In the autobiographical digression to his Defensio Secunda (1654), Milton strove to scotch the invidious charge in the Regii Sanguinis Clamor that his blindness was a divine act of retribution, an accusation frequently renewed against him by his enemies at the Restoration, by presenting a representative list of sightless Classical, Biblical, and Christian worthies.
