about

The lives of women in religious communities in late medieval Europe are the main focus of this volume which brings together a body of original research by historians and literary scholars and discusses a variety of such communities in France, Germany and Wales. The perspective is also broadened to include the lives of women in relation to the local community in places as far apart as East Anglia and southern Italy.

The volume is a significant contribution to a fast developing field and should appeal not only to medieval specialists but all those with an interest in women's history and writing.

Dianne Watt is a member of the Department of English at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, Wales.
