Jean Gerson and Gender

Full Product Description

Jean Gerson and Gender reconciles the somewhat enigmatic legacy of one of the most influential late medieval intellectuals: the theologian, court preacher, university chancellor, and church reformer, Jean Gerson (d. 1429). Gerson provided foundational contributions to two historical developments: the promotion of rational and just government, and the development of the European concept of the witch. This book argues that Gerson's association of royal and ascetic women with sin and diabolical influences allowed him to maintain - against overwhelming evidence to the contrary - the appearance of centralized monarchical rule, a stable ecclesiastical hierarchy, and a reliable method for constructing communally verifiable political and religious truths.

Jean Gerson and Gender by N. McLoughlin was published by Palgrave Macmillan in June 2015. The ISBN for Jean Gerson and Gender is 9781137488824.
