Gertrude the Great, Angela of Foligno, Birgitta of Sweden, Julian of Norwich. This is an excellent introduction to some of the most fascinating women of the high Middle Ages: Gertrude, living the traditional Benedictine monastic life but influenced by the new spirit of romanticism introduced by Bernard of Clairvaux; Angela, the wife and mother who became a Franciscan tertiary; Birgitta, noblewoman and foundress of a new mixed community of men and women; and Julian, the recluse who produced a remarkable work of theology. Elizabeth Obbard's introductions clearly set the stage for reading these women with profit.
