A collection of essays representing the growing variety of approaches used to write the history of medieval women. They reflect the European medieval world socially, geographically and across religious boundaries, engaging directly with how the medieval women's experience wa reconstructed, as well as what the experience was.

"This collection of thirteen essays by North American scholars provides a series of micro-biographies of individual medieval women's 'lived experience,' ones that aim to recover some of the nuance and emotion of women's relationships and their political connections. In their introduction, editors Charlotte Newman Goldy and Amy Livingstone offer a cogent overview of the historiography about medieval women, detailing how these essays both draw on established historiographical approaches and chart new avenues for writing the stories of women about whom only fragmentary records survive. Divided into two sections, Rereading Sources and Seeking the Undocumented, this collection features work by well-established second- or beginning-stage third-generation scholars of women's history." - The Medieval Review
