About this title


Women at Work in Spain offers evidence that women not only managed large estates and conducted the economic life of monasteries, but they also produced wealth through their labor as migrant and farm workers. These essays offer important data unearthed from archives in Castile, Leon, Toledo, and Seville, by documenting the contribution of women to the economic and cultural development of the Iberian Peninsula. These studies reveal that the survival of cultural traditions, the writing and illustrating of manuscripts, and the flowering of the printing industry were often in the hands of women.
