Unquiet Women: from the Dusk of the Roman Empire to the Dawn of the Enlightenment

£10.99

Product description

"Unquiet Women" is an exquisitely crafted patchwork of the forgotten lives of some of the most remarkable women in history. Wynflæd was an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who owned male slaves and
badger-skin gowns; Egeria a Gaulish nun who toured the Holy Land as the Roman
Empire was collapsing; Gudrid an Icelandic explorer and the first woman to give
birth to a European child on American soil; Mary Astell a philosopher who
out-thought John Locke. In this exploration of the lives of women living
between the last days of Rome and the Enlightenment, Max Adams triumphantly
overturns the idea that women of this period were either queens, nuns or
invisible. A kaleidoscopic study of women's creativity, intellect and
influence, "Unquiet Women" brings to life the experiences of women whose
stories are all too rarely told. 
The book is in excellent condition, as new.
