The Reformation introduced a new and expanded role for women as critical participants in Christian life. "Women and the Reformation" gathers historical materials and personal accounts to provide a comprehensive and accessible look at the causes and effects of the changing status of women in the church. Examining individual stories from women of the times, this volume includes biographical sketches from figures as diverse as the ex-nun Katie Luther and Queen Marguerite of Navarre; the prophetess Martha Zitterin and Henry VIII's wife Anne of Cleeves. The first book of its kind, this groundbreaking text brings together social history and theology, to provide an original assessment of the theological effects that these women had on Christian spirituality. A website to accompany "Women and the Reformation" is available, featuring writings by the women included here.
