Religious Women in Early Carolingian Francia
Full Product Description
This is the first study of these "Anglo-Saxon missionaries to Germany" to delve into the details of their intellectual and cultural lives by studying the manuscripts that were produced in their scriptoria and used in their communities. A focus on the books associated with their women's monasteries reveals that what Rosemary Radford Reuther, a leading feminist theologian and historian of Christianity, wrote of later women such as Hildegard of Bingen and Mechthild of Magdeburg can also be said of the religious women of eighth-century Francia: "they reshaped the gender symbolism of [Christian] spiritualities in a way that clearly made them agents of their bown lives ...as well as ...pastoral teachers for their communities, who valued them and carefully preserved their teachings for us to read today. This is surely some part of feminism" (Goddesses and the Divine Feminine, 2005).
Religious Women in Early Carolingian Francia by Felice Lifshitz was published by Fordham University Press in May 2014. The ISBN for Religious Women in Early Carolingian Francia is 9780823256877.
