SACRED DRAMAS:

CHIEFLY INTENDED

FOR YOUNG PERSONS.

THE SUBJECTS TAKEN FROM THE BIBLE.

All the books of the Bible are either most admirable and exalted pieces of poetry, or the best materials in the world for it.

COWLEY.

TO HER GRACE

THE DUCHESS OF BEAUFORT,

THESE SACRED DRAMAS,

are, with the most perfect respect,

INSCRIBED;

as, among the

many

amiable and distinguished qualities

which adorn her mind,

and add lustre to her rank, her excellence in the maternal character

gives a peculiar propriety
to her protection of this little work;

written with an humble wish to promote the love of piety and virtue

in young persons,

by Her GRACE's
most obedient,
most obliged, and
most humble servant,

HANNAH MORE.
