Item description for Saints, Scholars and Politicians: Gender as an Analytical Tool in Medieval Studies (Medieval Church Studies) (Medieval Church Studies) by M. Van Dijk R. I. A. Nip...
Over the past eighteen years, gender has become a major analytical tool in medieval studies. The purpose of this volume is to evaluate its use and to search for ways in which to improve and enhance its value. The authors address the question of how gender relates to other tools of medieval research. Several articles criticize the way in which an exclusive focus on gender tends to obscure the impact of other factors, for instance class, politics, economy, or the genre in which a source is written. Other articles address 'wrong' ways of using gender, for instance monolithic or anachronistic views of what constitutes differences between men and women.
