Editorial Reviews


“... wonderful accounts of female bloody-mindedness and a very accessible explanation of the Church’s growing limitation of women’s roles ... it is unusual to find a book that is both useful and fun.”—Sara Maitland

“The modern resistors of the feminine role can now, thanks to this lively book, take heart from the exploits of their foremothers who cocked a snook at bossy St Jerome and guilt-ridden St Augustine and invented their own routes to freedom and fulfillment.”—New Statesman and Society

About the Author

Joyce E. Salisbury is professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and the author of Iberian Popular, 600 B.C. to 700 A.D. and Medieval Sexuality: A Research Guide.
