Cr8vo, 373pp. Softcover in pristine condition, text is as-new and unopened other than a neat gift inscription from an editor on the first title page. This is a very scholarly collection of six essays written over several years prior to publication as examples of some of the best work done at the undergraduate level in Australia’s oldest tertiary institution teaching medieval studies. The essays, notes and introductions refer to the place of women within the western cultural tradition of writing, religious inspiration and conceptions of self.
