Virtue, Liberty, and Toleration : Political Ideas of European Women, 1400-1800 Hardback
Edited by Jacqueline Broad, Karen Green
Part of the The New Synthese Historical Library series
This volume serves as an introduction to a rich and as yet under-explored period in the history of women's ideas.
The volume provides a partial insight into the richness and complexity of women's political ideas in the centuries prior to the French Revolution.
The essays in this collection examine women's political writings with particular reference to the themes of virtue (especially the virtue of phronesis or prudence), liberty, and toleration.
