Jane Tibbetts Schulenburg. Despite religious claims of a spiritual egalitarianism in the heavenly kingdom, there was a definite tendency in the Middle Ages to organize the celestial realm according to the established customs, values, and hierarchy of earthly society. In this study of over 2500 female and male saints, Jane Schulenburg explores women's status and experience in early medieval society and in the Church.

In this remarkable study of over 2,200 female and male saints, Jane Schulenburg explores women's status and experience in early medieval society and in the Church by examining factors such as family wealth and power, patronage, monasticism, virginity, and motherhood. The result is a unique depiction of the lives of these strong, creative, independent-minded women who achieved a visibility in their society that led to recognition of sanctity."A tremendous piece of scholarship. . . . This journey through more than 2,000 saints is anything but dull. Along the way, Schulenburg informs our ideas regarding the role of saints in the medieval psyche, gender-specific identification, and the heroics of virginity." —Library Journal"[This book] will be a kind of 'roots' experience for some readers. They will hear the voices, haunted and haunting, of their distant ancestors and understand more about themselves." —Christian Science Monitor"This fascinating book reaches far beyond the history of Christianity to recreate the 'herstory' of a whole gender." —Kate Saunders, The Independent

FORGETFUL OF THEIR SEX is a truly outstanding resource to those interested in female sanctity and the history of women in general, as well as the history of women and the Christian church. This book came to me highly recommended and did not disappoint. In a decade that has offered so much by the way of investigative scholarship of women's monastic and religious history, this book is a stand-out. This book is by and large very accessible and in general a great read. I especially appreciated the many specific examples and stories included in the text.
While I think this book is terrific for the scholar and amateur historian alike, it is clearly a book of scholarship with a fantastic bib, index and good notes to the text. My only complaint is in the lack of translation of some Latin and German terms and quotations, although the problem is minimal by comparison with some other books of this sort I have seen. Tibbetts does attempt to put terms into appropriate context, and overall, the lack of translation was not problematic enough for me want to reduce my rating to four stars.

This book was very important for my MA thesis. Glad that I found it in a good price and place.
