Particularly fascinating are the attitudes towards women, as well as their changes in social status. By examining the factors involved in these issues, including views of the leadership, economic influences, internal power politics, and gender struggles, Goldins book provides a greater understanding of the functioning of these communities. This volume will be of great interest to historians of medieval Europe, gender, and religion.
