Women in the Reformation
The fascinating story of what the Reformation did for women and what women did for the Reformation
It is a frequent complaint that women have been airbrushed out of history, their contributions forgotten, their voices silenced. In this superbly written book, historian Derek Wilson redresses the balance, showing how women were crucial to the Reformation.
Working alongside men--and sometimes in opposition to them--women were able to study, to speak, to write, to struggle... and even to die for what they believed, and to leave behind a record of all these achievements. From Catharina Luther, through English martyr Anne Askew, to Elizabeth I, and onward into Europe--this book reveals the rich threads women wove into the tapestry of history.
