A History of Women in the West
1, From Ancient Goddesses to Christian SaintsBook - 1992
In the words of the general editors, A History of Women seeks to understand women's place in society, their condition, the roles they played and the powers they possessed, their silence, their speech, and their deeds. It is the variety of the representations of women - as gods, Madonnas, witches, and so on - that we hope to capture, in its permanence as well as its many transformations. Informed by the work of 75 distinguished historians, this five-volume series presents a panoramic chronicle that extends from antiquity to the present day.
