Sisters in arms : Catholic nuns through two millennia by Jo Ann McNamara( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Dutch and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History has, until recently, minimized the role of nuns over the centuries. In this volume, their rich lives, their work, and their importance to the Church are finally acknowledged. Jo Ann Kay McNamara introduces us to women scholars, mystics, artists, political activists, healers, and teachers - individuals whose religious vocation enabled them to pursue goals beyond traditional gender roles
Daily life in the world of Charlemagne by Pierre Riché( Book )

8 editions published between 1978 and 1988 in English and held by 1,570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed account of the common people's daily life in the time of Charlemagne and how politics and military struggle affected them
Sainted women of the Dark Ages by Jo Ann McNamara( )

22 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sainted Women of the Dark Ages makes available the lives of eighteen Frankish women of the sixth and seventh centuries, all of whom became saints. Written in Latin by contemporaries or near contemporaries, and most translated here for the first time, these biographies cover the period from the fall of the Roman Empire and the conversion of the invading Franks to the rise of Charlemagne's family.Three of these holy women were queens who turned to religion only after a period of intense worldly activity. Others were members of the Carolingian family, deeply implicated in the political ambitions of their male relatives. Some were partners in the great Irish missions to the pagan countryside and others worked for the physical salvation of the poor. From the peril and suffering of their lives they shaped themselves as paragons of power and achievement. Beloved by their sisters and communities for their spiritual gifts, they ultimately brought forth a new model of sanctity.These biographies are unusually authentic. At least two were written by women who knew their subjects, while others reflect the direct testimony of sisters within the cloister walls. Each biography is accompanied by an introduction and notes that clarify its historical context. This volume will be an excellent source for students and scholars of women's studies and early medieval social, religious, and political history

Paris in the Middle Ages by Simone Roux( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paris in the Middle Ages was home to royalty, mountebanks, Knights Templar, merchants, prostitutes, and canons. Bursting outward from the encompassing wall, it was Europe's largest, most cosmopolitan city. Simone Roux chronicles the lives of Parisians over the course of a dozen generations as Paris grew from a military stronghold after the Battle of Bouvines in 1214 to a city recovering from the Black Death of the 1390s. Centering on the streets of this metropolis, Roux peers into the private lives of people within their homes as well as the public world of affairs and entertainments, filling the pages of her book with laborers, shopkeepers, magistrates, thieves, and prelates. She examines the varied populations living within their own realms but sharing those streets: the Latin Quarter, where the university dominated; the precincts of Notre Dame, with its large number of clerical inhabitants; the mercantile world of the Right Bank; and the royal palace of the Louvre, with its attendant palaces for the king's satellites. She breathes life into dusty documents by explicating the lingo of street insults, making sense of patron saints--Sebastian, who was riddled with arrows, became the patron saint of tapestry workers--and entering the courtrooms and confessionals to tell how people actually ate, slept, dressed, fought, worked, and worshipped in the later Middle Ages."--Résumé de l'éditeur
