Product Description


Innovative approaches to the history of powerful women are evident in Susan M. Johns (book) which structures a great deal of new material in productive ways, making especially good use of women's seals and the neglected Fotuli de dominabus of 1185 alongside narrative texts and charters. Her case studies of the countesses of Chester and the patrons of Clerkenwell nunnery of the outskirts of London are well chosen. Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature --Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature

John's work in this section is ground-breaking. Susan John s work is careful, thoughtful and refreshing, demonstrating that careful analysis of character evidence provides a complex image of medieval noblewomen. The author should be congratulated for having produced a work of diplomatic analysis which is so pleasurable to read. --Laura Napran, Pembroke College, University of Cambridge Early Medieval Europe 2003 12 (3)
