* Theology
* Biology

* Sexuality and Motherhood
* Politics and Law
* Education
* Work
* Writing and Speaking
* Feminism
Renaissance Woman: A Sourcebook brings together sources ranging from medical documents and political pamphlets to sermons and the Bible, as well as literary sources. Providing a historical context to issues of gender in the Renasissance, it will be essential reading for students of the period, gender studies and cultural history.
