'Women's Lives Self-Representation, Reception and Appropriation in the Middle Ages' by Nahir I. Otaño Gracia and Daniel Armenti
'Women’s Lives' presents essays on the ways in which the lives and voices of women were heard through medieval literature and culture, medieval women, such as Hildegard of Bingen and Teresa of Cartagena, as well as lesser-known scholars of the European Middle Ages, such as Al-Kāhina and Liang Hongyu.
Each essay is directly related to the work of Elizabeth Petroff, a scholar of Medieval Women Mystics who helped recover texts written by medieval women.
Nahir I. Otaño Gracia is an assistant professor of English at the University of New Mexico, and a member at the Institute for Advanced Study.
