Our goal is to document the participation of Christian women in the religion and society of medieval Europe. In particular, we aim to:

  • Collect and make available all existing data about all professional Christian women in Europe between 400 and 1600 C.E.
  • Investigate and promote new ways of understanding the lives and leadership of religious women in premodern Europe.
  • Design new methods for publishing historical information about women.
  • Publish innovative research about women, gender, and religion.
