Issue 30: Women in the Medieval Church

During the age of Christendom, lay women found one primary outlet through which they could express their spiritual yearnings: monasticism. Women entered orders and convents with well-developed self-identity and bold purpose: to seek the love of Christ. Encounters with a wildly loving God spurred some to isolation and others to action. Read about Julian's visions, Catherine's social service, Joan's bravery, and much more in this enlightening and inspiring issue of Christian History & Biography.
