About the Author
Beverly Mayne Kienzle received her BA from the University of Maryland and her MA and PhD from Boston College. She began teaching at Harvard Divinity School in 1986 and currently is the John H. Morison Professor of the Practice in Latin and Romance Languages, Lecturer on Medieval Christianity, and the Faculty Director of Language Studies. Her courses on Christian Latin and medieval Christianity emphasize the careful examination of primary sources and the role of texts in medieval culture. As past president of the International Medieval Sermon Studies Society, she channels her passion for medieval sermons into her teaching and her publications on preaching. Her work focuses on the place of preaching and sermons in the history of medieval religion and on evidence for women's preaching in monastic, lay, and dissident communities. A concern about violence against women motivates her continuing research on battering in historical narratives. She has published several books on medieval sermons and preaching, including: Hildegard of Bingen and her Gospel Homilies (2009); Hildegard of Bingen, Expositiones euangeliorum, co-edited with Carolyn Muessig (2007), and The Sermon. Typologie des sources du moyen âge occidental, fasc. 81-83, (2000).
Teresa Mendez-Faith was born in Asuncion, Paraguay but has lived in other countries most of her life. She graduated from high school in Montevideo, Uruguay and completed her university studies in the United States, receiving her Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in 1979. She currently resides in New England. An essayist, literary critic, and college professor, she teaches Hispanic-American literature at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.Her book Paraguay: Novela y Exilio (1985), was chosen by the New England Council of Latin American Studies as the "Book of the year" (1985). She has authored three Hispanic-American literary anthologies: Contextos literarios hispanoamericanos (1986), Panoramas literarios: America Hispana (1998) and Nuevos contextos: Doce cuentistas contemporáneos de Hispanoamerica (2002) and more than 30 critical articles (published in diverse literary journals), and is co-author of four Spanish textbooks.Teresa Mendez-Faith has been awarded several academic distinctions, including two postgraduate scholarships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the AAUP "Teacher of the Year" prize at her college (1990), and, also that same year, the "Sears-Roebuck Foundation Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award.". In December 1999, the Society of Paraguayan Writers (SEP) granted her an "Honorary Diploma" for her work in "the dissemination of Paraguayan literature." This work began in 1994, with the appearance of two books published in Asuncion by El Lector: Breve Diccionario de la Literatura Paraguaya y Breve Antologia de la Literatura Paraguaya (2nd edition, 1997-98). This initial pair of volumes has been followed, to date, by three double-volume anthologies, organized by genre, which were published in Asuncion by Intercontinental Editora: Poesia Paraguaya de Ayer y de Hoy, Volume I (1995) and Volume II (1997), Narrativa Paraguaya de Ayer y de Hoy, Volumes I and II (1999), and Teatro Paraguayo de Ayer y de Hoy, Volumes I and

I feel that the background information that the authors provided was very helpful. The language was appropriate for a student of my level and I did not have to use my dictionary excessively. Furthermore, the authors did a good job of providing translations of archaic or esoteric words or phrases. Also, the exercises at the end of each reading helped guide my attention to what the authors think are the important themes or questions. It was VERY useful to have them there.
However, I wish that they had included some maps so that when they referred to a place I could see where it is located. The maps could go into an appendix. Also, the book would greatly benefit from a comprehensive index. This edition only includes a table of contents, no index, so you are not able to look something up. This is very frustrating and wastes a lot of time. And it seems that the website is no longer available.
Nevertheless, I recommend this book and give it four stars.
