Editorial Reviews


`Gilchrist demonstrates convincingly that gender analysis of material culture can offer a very stimulating and illuminating interpretation of the past. Her multidisciplinary approach and clear theoretical background inspire new paths for research and interpretation of both old and new archaeological historical data.' - Archaeology Ireland Aut 96

`... Roberta Cilchrist has introduced a new dimension into this area of study, and ably demonstrated how an analysis of material culture can inform our knowledge of the gendered identities of both female and male religious. ... The strength of this work lies in both its interrogation of material evidence and its critical application of current theoretical perspectives in the archaeology of gender. Unlike many recent writings on gender, it does not merely focus on the female experience, but addresses the differences, and similarities, in the construction of the experience of both female and male religious. ... in her imaginative use and anlysis of archaeological evidence Gilchrist has made a major contribution to both monastic studies and the archaeology of gender ... there is a discourse between theory and practice.' - Gender & History Jrnl

`This book fills a major gap, and is published at a moment when there is considerable new interest in the monastic architecture of women... [Gilchrist establishes] the issue of women's archaeology within the wider context of cultural and social analysis.' - Carolone Bruzelius, Director, American Academy in Rome

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book addresses medieval archaeology and architecture and its text depends on the quality of its images and floor plans. The Kindle Edition does a deplorable job of transferring the images and plans from the print version to this electric edition. It is impossible to make out the graphs, the artwork is miniscule and the floor plans are rendered useless. While it might be nice to save twenty dollars on the Kindle Edition, the hard copy is essential to grasping the author's argument and gaining a firm understanding of gendered architecture.
