Summary "Encyclopedia of Women in the Renaissance provides portraits of famous women such as Catherine of Siena, Elizabeth I, and Christine de Pisan, and those less well known like Elena Lucrezia Cornaro, the first woman in history to receive a doctorate, and Louise Boursier, author of medical textbooks and midwife to Marie de Medicis. Based on the latest research and enhanced with thematic essays on witchcraft, women writers and salons, masculinity, women and power, and more, this work casts our understanding of women's lives and roles in Renaissance history and culture in a new light."--BOOK JACKET.
