Editorial Reviews


"...this book will be of value to libraries supporting graduate level coursework in religiuous or social history." Catholic Library World

"Christine Peters' contribution is a very significant one...It will be required reading for anyone with a serious interest in late medieval religion, Protestantism, and the effects of the Reformation on the piety of men and women, and on perceptions of gender." American Historical Review

"This important contribution to the history of the Reformation and its impact on women and gender relations will undoubtedly stimulate much further research." Anglican and Episcopal History, Martha Skeeters, Norman, Oklahoma

"This book is beautifully produced with many illustrations and a full bibliography as well as notes. It deserves to be widely read." Renaissance Quarterly

Book Description

This book offers a new interpretation of the transition from Catholicism to Protestantism in the English Reformation, and explores its implications for an understanding of women and gender. It argues that late medieval Christocentric piety shaped the nature of the Reformation, and reasseses assumptions that the 'loss' of the Virgin Mary and the saints was detrimental to women. In defining the representative frail Christian as a woman devoted to Christ, the Reformation could not be an alien environment for women, while the Christocentric tradition encouraged the questioning of gender stereotypes.
