Silvia Evangelisti is Lecturer in Early Modern History in the School of History at the University of East Anglia. She has published widely on women and gender history in both English and Italian, looking especially at female religious life in the early modern period.


Review from previous edition: ' [This] books provides a meticulously researched background to our contemporary interest. This is an elegantly argued, highly readable history of women whose lives have, until recently, remained shrouded beneath fears and prejudices.' Julie Wheelwright, The Independent (Extra) 11/06/2007
