The Book of the City of Ladies: Wrapup
April 2, 2012

Here we are at the end of March (well, close enough), and it’s time to wrap up our reading of the Book of the City of Ladies. I hope you all enjoyed it or at least got something out of it. I know my rather one-sided enthusiasm for Christine’s amazing book is not necessarily shared by all of you!
I was so pleased to have the chance to learn about this international debate, the “Querrel du Roman de la Rose,” and the resulting discussion about the status of women in society. I would love to read more of the documents from that debate, and hope to get that chance sometime.
Thanks so much for joining in this month’s reading. If you haven’t yet linked up your blog post, this is the place to do it. Please tell me your thoughts about medieval society, women, and Christine’s challenge to her contemporaries.
