Though medieval women’s historians have done much to tease out the experiences of women in the Middle Ages from recalcitrant sources, scholarship is currently at something of a crossroads. By implementing innovative research and narrative strategies (some borrowed from the scholarship of the early modern world), these essays demonstrate how scholars can push the boundaries to add more texture, detail, and vitality to the lives of medieval women. Essays in this volume examine a range of the life experiences of medieval women, from Frankish peasants to Iberian queens. They also employ different methodologies of exploring women's lives -- such as examination of material culture, archeology, space, and the environment -- and different texts -- letters, charters, saints' lives, and economic documents.
