From the Publisher"Ranft provides a compelling re-vision...with commendable clarity and elegance...essential [for] all libraries..."
—L.E. Mitchell, Choice
Western intellectual tradition has long been viewed as an exclusive male bastion, but Women in Western Intellectual Culture, 600-1500 proves that this thesis is no longer tenable. By identifying and analyzing the intellectual writings and activities of women throughout the centuries this study, the first of two volumes, documents a level of participation in intellectual matters that will surprise many readers. The quality and quantity of these contributions will persuade even the skeptic that women's voices deserve more attention in intellectual history.
