Elizabeth Seton’s devotion to the Bible is explored using her writings from different times in her life. She “used biblical language to express her own thoughts” and made direct references to the Bible. Catechisms and methods she used at the Emmitsburg school, her markings in her own Bibles, and her copies of biblical commentaries are examined, along with the documents Antonio Filicchi and Henry Hobart prepared for her as she weighed her conversion to Catholicism. Joan Cook describes how the Bible was Elizabeth’s “friend, the object of her study, and her anchor.”
