Journal of Ecclesiastical HistoryThis scathing treatise by a seventeenth-century Venetian nun . . . should make uneasy reading for historians, theologians, Catholics, fathers, mothers, and brothers alike, as it exposes a system whereby daughters in Counter-Reformation Venice were 'imprisoned' in convents as nuns. . . . It is unusual to hear quite so loudly and clearly what a woman (let alone a nun) thought of her life in seventeenth-century Catholic Europe.
