In this remarkable study of more than 2,500 female and male saints, historian Jane Schulenburg explores women's status and experience in early medieval society and in the Church. The lives of these early saints afford rare insight into the private world of medieval men and women, the special bonds of family and friendship, and the collective mentalities of the period. 23 photos.
