📙 Double Agents: Women and Clerical Culture in Anglo-Saxon England (University of Wales Press - Religion and Culture in the Middle Ages) by Clare A. Lees, Gillian R. Overing — download pdf


First published in 2001, Double Agents was the first book-length study of women in Anglo-Saxon written culture that took on the insights provided by contemporary critical and feminist theory, and it quickly established itself as a standard. Now available again, it complicates the exclusion of women from the historical record of Anglo-Saxon England by tackling the deeper questions behind how the feminine is modeled, used, and made metaphoric in Anglo-Saxon texts, even when the women themselves are absent.
