Product Description

Nuns have been associated with the Cistercian Order since its inception, yet--with the exception of a few famous--or infamous--houses they received scant attention until the current explosion in gender studies. This collection of studies should fan the embers of this developing interest into flames. Treated here by experts in the field are the iconographic depiction of Saint Bernard's sister Humbeline, the history and regional architecture of Cistercian women's houses in such diverse areas as southern France, the Low Countries, Germany, and Spain; and detailed examinations of artifacts produced by the nuns themselves--a manuscript from Austria and a tapestry from the Netherlands. Each chapter in its way opens a new window into the lives of the women who lived quietly and largely unremembered in the cloisters of medieval Europe.
