About this item

Scholars of religion and of the Middle Ages offer help reading the work of French anchoress Colette (1381-1447), a major figure in reforming the Franciscan movement, to return convents to St. Clare's Form of Life, which prohibited from owning property and receiving stable income. They cover the life and afterlives of Saint Colette; the dukes and duchesses of Burgundy as benefactors of Colette de Corbie and the Colettine Poor Clares; Colette, Joan of Arc, and the expanding boundaries of women's leadership in the 15th century; the "privilege of poverty;" an illuminated version of Pierre de Vaux's Vie de Colette; and cult and canonization.
