Devout Laywomen in the Early Modern World

Full Product Description

Devout laywomen raise a number of provocative questions about gender and religion in the early modern world. How did some groups or individuals evade the Tridentine legislation that required third order women to take solemn vows and observe active and passive enclosure? How did their attempts to exercise a female apostolate (albeit with varying degrees of success and assertiveness) destabilize hierarchies of class and gender? To the extent that their beliefs and practices diverged from approved doctrine and rituals, what insights can they provide into the tensions between official religion and lay religiosity? Addressing these and many other questions, Devout Laywomen in the Early Modern World reflects new directions in gender history, offering a more nuanced approach to the paradigm of woman as the prototypical 'disciplined' subject of church-state power.

Devout Laywomen in the Early Modern World by Alison Weber was published by Ashgate Publishing Group in February 2016. The ISBN for Devout Laywomen in the Early Modern World is 9781472424914.
