Issue 122, Medieval Women

5.99

In this issue, we celebrate the lives, achievements, and contributions of medieval women. From the poetry of early sixteenth century Korean muse Hwang Jini, to the bravery of Maria Comnena in the crusader states, to the magic of Iceland’s Þorbjǫrg, the myth of “Queen Maker” Melusine, and the piety Saint Bridget of Sweden, we criss-cross the globe to learn more about women’s lives, and challenge the myth that they lived in an age where they were viewed solely as second class citizens. We also examine the ways in which women navigated work in fourteenth century France, how the changing definitions of witchcraft impacted women’s lives, and how perceptions of women evolved in medieval literature. Last but not least, we talk to the Five-Minute Medievalist, and share a book excerpt with you! We hope you enjoy this exciting, jam-packed issue!
