These pages capture a thousand years of medieval women's visionary writing, from late antiquity to the 15th century. Written by hermits, recluses, wives, mothers, wandering teachers, founders of religious communities, and reformers, the selections reveal how medieval women felt about their
lives, the kind of education they received, how they perceived the religion of their time, and why ascetic life attracted them.
