Edited by Kathryn Kerby-Fulton, Katie Ann-Marie Bugyis and John Van Engen
Wide-ranging examination of women’s achievements in and influence on many aspects of medieval culture.
“Women Intellectuals and Leaders in the Middle Ages is an impressive volume of essays that ranges across academic disciplines, countries, time periods, and sources in order to contribute to key debates about women’s history and role in intellectual life throughout the medieval period. The editors, Kathryn Kerby-Fulton, Katie Ann-Marie Bugyis, and John Van Engen, set out to “tak[e] early women intellectuals and leaders seriously,” as the title of Kerby-Fulton’s introduction puts it, and in this aim it absolutely succeeds.” Journal of British Studies
