aspirations, the rise of western monasticism was the most note­ worthy event of the early centuries. The importance of monasteries cannot be overstressed as sources of spirituality, learning and auto­ nomy in the intensely masculinized, militarized feudal period. Drawing their members from the highest levels of society, women's monasteries provided an outlet for the energy and ambition of strong-willed women, as well as positions of considerable authority. Even from periods relatively inhospitable to learning of all kinds, the memory has been preserved of a good number of women of education. Their often considerable achievements and influence, however, generally lie outside even an expanded definition of philo­ sophy. Among the most notable foremothers of this early period were several whose efforts signal the possibility of later philosophical work. Radegund, in the sixth century, established one of the first Frankish convents, thereby laying the foundations for women's spiritual and intellectual development. From these beginnings, women's monasteries increased rapidly in both number and in­ fluence both on the continent and in Anglo-Saxon England. Hilda (d. 680) is well known as the powerful abbsess of the double monastery of Whitby. She was eager for knowledge, and five Eng­ lish bishops were educated under her tutelage. She is also accounted the patron of Caedmon, the first Anglo-Saxon poet of religious verse. The Anglo-Saxon nun Lioba was versed in the liberal arts as well as Scripture and canon law.

Product Description:

edited by Mary Ellen Waithe Series: HISTORY OF WOMEN PHILOSOPHERS volume: 2 The second volume in this series surveys women philosophers from the medieval through enlightenment periods. Like their male counterparts, women philosophers addressed scientific, political, moral and religious issues. Often they were also playwriters, novelists, poets, composers or politicians. Although each was famous in her day, few, other than Heloise and Teresa of Avila, are known as philosophers. They, together with Gertrude the Great, Roswitha of Gandershem and Margaret More Roper are considered only briefly in this volume. Chapters discussing Catherine of Siena's ethics, Oliva Sabuco de Nantes Barrera's philosophy of medicine, Marie le Jars de Gournay's feminism, Hildegard's metaphysics and cosmology, Julian of Norwich's epistemology, Shikibu Murasaki's Shinto ethics, Christine de Pisan's moral philosophy, and the mysticism of Hadewych of Antwerp, Beatrijs of Nazareth, and Mechtild of Magdeburg document the scope of pre-17th century women's interests in philosophy.
