Synopsis

Nuns and devout noblewomen were sometimes celebrated for their achievements in the literature of the medieval period, but more often than not these women only appear on the side-lines of history, while the ordinary wife and mother is virtually invisible. These papers, written by historians and archaeologists, discuss the religious devotion and spiritual life of medieval women from all walks of life. From an analysis of the architecture and economic organisation of nunneries, to an assessment of the medieval Church's response to the pain and perils of childbirth, these papers consider the influence of the church on the lives of women, and the influence that women had on the life and worship of the Church. The papers in this collection started as contributions to a conference held in Oxford in 2001.

Diana Wood is Associate Tutor in Local History at the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education and Senior Research Fellow in History at the University of East Anglia. Her main interests are in medieval ecclesiastical, economic, and social history, and in the history of ideas. She is author of Medieval Economic Thought (Cambridge, 2002). For many years she was editor of Studies in Church History, the official publication of the Ecclesiastical History Society.
