How to order?
The late medieval Sister-Books are works authored by women. This first-ever
comprehensive study of these writings is based both on the published texts
and on all known manuscripts. The Sister-Books, some composed in Latin,
others in Middle High German, were written by Dominican nuns in the German-
spreaking countries during the first half of the fourteenth century. Texts
of eight of the nine Sister-Books (comprising 473 pages) are provided on
microfiche at the end of the volume.
