Library of Medieval Women

This series offers texts (in translation) and interpretive essays illuminating women’s intellectual and spiritual life in the middle ages.

These texts make [an extraordinarily valuable contribution to medieval studies. They're highly readable, teachable, affordable, and well-executed.] They'll expand the state of scholarship on medieval women; and more specifically, they'll enhance our understanding of medieval culture in general by showing how women participated vitally as travel writers, historians, writers of epics, and playwrights.

Texts with introduction, notes, and interpretative essays, illuminating women's intellectual and spiritual life in the middle ages. Ideally suited for the classroom or for any medievalist or general reader looking for an introduction to the author... The standard of scholarship and critical acumen in all of these volumes is uniformly very high. SPECULUM [Charles Nelson]

Very useful introductions. MEDIUM AEVUM 

In publishing the `Library of Medieval Women', Boydell & Brewer performs an extremely valuable service for scholars and students of medieval studies, as well as to general readers interested in this fascinating era. The `Library' documents the vital and diverse contributions of women to medieval culture, a field that is just recently beginning to receive the attention that it deserves. The present texts hint at the rich diversity and erudition in the scope of medieval women's literary production. Anne Clark Bartlett, DePaul University
