In Anglo-Norman Britain, women were important consumers and patrons of literature, as well as sometimes composing works themselves. Clemence of Barking is one of the first women writing in England after the Norman Conquest. Her twelfth-century Life of St. Catherine--virgin martyr and patron saint of female learning--is here translated for the first time in 800 years. Hundreds of Latin biographies by medieval clerics exist in which young women saints are put to death.
