About the Authors
  • Throughout her career as a medieval historian, Eileen Power was engaged on a book on women in the Middle Ages. She did not live to write the book but some of the material she collected found its way into her popular lectures on medieval women. These lectures were brought together and edited by M. M. Postan. They reveal the world in which women lived, were educated, worked, and worshipped. Power gives a vivid account of the worlds of the lady, the peasant, the townswoman, and the nun. The result is a historical yet intimate picture of a period gone by yet with resonances for today. An intimate portrait of the writer and social historian, by Maxine Berg, is also included.

    • An accessible and clear snapshot of the life and work of women in medieval times from the nunnery to the town to the castle
    • Provides lively narratives on special women representative of the period
    • Contains numerous illustrations from the period
    • Introductory chapter on Eileen Power by leading medieval historian, Maxine Berg
