Praise

“This well-conceived volume gathers and fruitfully juxtaposes fresh material from many sites and communities and provides an entrée into the specialized research of a rich range of scholars. Many essays also suggest comparative links to developments not only within Iberia but beyond it. Altogether the collection makes a distinctive and valuable contribution to the history of European women before 1700.”—Elizabeth S. Cohen, coauthor of Daily Life in Renaissance Italy

“The collection brings together an amazing array of research that investigates how Iberian women understood and constituted communities. . . . It will be particularly valuable for students as a way of discussing methodology: the range of sources represented in the collection and the authors’ careful explanation of these sources will be great for teaching.”—Elizabeth A. Lehfeldt, author of Religious Women in Golden Age Spain: The Permeable Cloister
