Summary:
"Rooted in women's concrete aspirations and sufferings, Newman's "womanChrist" model straddles the bounds of orthodoxy and heresy to illuminate the farther reaches of female religious behaviour in the Middle Ages. The book will generate compelling discussion in the fields of medieval literature and history, history of religion, theology, and women's studies." -- Back cover
