Cookery of Useful Knowledge
Education, Gender, Cultural Geography, Religious Authority
Discusses the resistance, reported in the Morning Post, of Félix A P Dupanloup, Bishop of Orleans, to proposals to institute 'cheap lectures' in 'every principal town in France' on 'history, geography, astronomy, natural science, and chemistry, to young ladies of the middle classes'. Questions the apparent view of Dupanloup that such education is not 'good intellectual meat for young ladies', and suggests that the Bishop would have this 'food for the mind [...] subjected to Ecclesiastical Cookery' before giving it to the women.
