This course uses historiographical analysis and feminist methodologies to examine the complex links between religious rhetoric, women's writings, and the questions surrounding female religious identity in later medieval and Early Modern Christianity. It traces the evolution and changing social role of female religious communities, and touches upon issues such as the relationship between the religious and secular, the formation of orthodoxy, and changing ideals of female holiness.
