Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pal offers a lively analysis of the intellectual dynamism evident at the exiled court of the Bohemian royal family at The Hague, which under the influence of the erudite Princess Elizabeth became the center of a tightly knit learned society from the 1630s to the 1680s."
Sarah Gwyneth Ross, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"What distinguishes this book is that it moves the focus away from publication, and toward those practices more easily lost to the historical record ... an important contribution to our knowledge of the work and lives of early modern women scholars."
Marguerite Deslauriers, The Review of Politics

"Pal's focus on this group of remarkable women can only be commended, and she convincingly demonstrates that they were as self-conscious as contemporary male scholars in seeking out possible mentors and, in turn, offering to fill the same role for younger women ... Pal's biography of these women as a group is a useful and interesting contribution to the study not only of early modern women writers, but also of the Republic of Letters as a whole."
Joanna Barker, The Seventeenth Century

Book Description

Carol Pal recaptures a forgotten moment in intellectual history, when a transnational network of female scholars was active within the republic of letters. In restoring this lost episode, Republic of Women sheds new light on the advancement of learning and reconfigures the map of learned Europe in the seventeenth century.
