The series Sanctimoniales: Religious Women – Geistliche Frauen presents research on the history of religious women in the European Middle Ages (and occasionally extending into the Early Modern era) in its many varied forms. A central goal of this series is to foster academic dialogue between German- and English-speaking scholars. The editors thus seek contributions that stem from diverse research traditions, and that represent a variety of methodological approaches, including those that engage the social, economic, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions of medieval religious communities for women. The series comprises both edited volumes of thematic articles and single-author monographs.

The Board ensures that the screening is done independently and without conflicts of interest.
