About this item

In order to explore how women, femininity, and in particular the female body were constructed and treated in medieval literature and culture, Schäfer-Althaus found female saints' legends to be the most promising source for early attitudes and phenomena concerning medieval femininity and femaleness. She covers cultural constructions: femininity, the body, and the saint; whether female breasts were considered female weakness; details that matter: the implications of hair (styles); silenced, penetrated, sexualized: two readings of teeth, tongues, and throats; and gender hybridity in women's hagiography.
