Review

If the authors had done no more than make their subjects better known, they would have put us all in their debt. But they have brought to their study a lived understanding of what it means to be a woman of the Church following the Rule of St. Benedict. In doing so, they have given us an insight into the perennial creativeness of the Benedictine way and a deeper sense of its rich spiritual heritage.
Abbess Joanna Jamieson, O.S.B., Stanbrook Abbey


A labor of love and respect.
WATERwheel


In our own times when women have made such strides toward assuming a rightful autonomy as well as leadership within the Church, Christian women Protestant as well as Roman Catholic are hungering to discover whether there were other women at all like themselves through the centuries. This book, describing as it does the lives, yearning for God, strength of character and accomplishments of many great Benedictine women from the sixth to the seventeenth centuries will satisfy some of that hunger.
Roberta C. Bondi, Candler School of Theology

I'm so glad to see this book back in print. Each chapter is about a different monastic woman from that era. They both inspire and remind us of the spiritual journey they lived. Well written and easy to go back to when a little inspiration is needed.
