medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
Welcome back to Reviews in History, featuring reviews of books and digital resources from across the subject.
This week we begin with an interesting study of the growth of women’s participation in political and social institutions in the late Victorian period, as Malcolm Noble reviews (no. 999) Megan Smitley’s The Feminine Public Sphere: Middle-Class Women in Civic Life in Scotland c.1870–1914.
You can also search and browse all 999 reviews here – do please let me know if you have any problem navigating the site or finding what you’re interested in.
Please do tune in as well next week when we’ll have a special edition to commemorate the milestone that is our 1000th review!
