Summary
"In Gender and Christianity in Medieval Europe, six historians seek to explain the convergence of religion and gender in medieval Christendom. Collectively their essays explore how medieval people professed Christianity, how they performed gender, and how the two coincided." "Whereas previous scholarship has tended to focus exclusively either on masculinity or on aristocratic women, the authors define their topic to include the study of all genders. Likewise, their essays strive for a generous definition of religious history, which has too often been a history of its most visible participants and dominant discourses. Thus, Gender and Christianity in Medieval Europe steps back from received assumptions about religion, gender, and history by considering what the terms "woman," "man," and "religious" truly mean for historians, ultimately enhancing our understanding of the gendered implications of every pious thought and ritual gesture of medieval Christians."--Jacket
