Description

The relationship between gender and heresy has been discussed since the Middle Ages themselves. While the idea that women were inherently attracted to religious dissent has been abandoned, a more systematic approach to the importance and roles of men and women remains rare. Similarly, while we know that kinship, household, and friendship ties could promote involvement in dissent, analyses of this issue have drawn only from a small portion of the extant sources. This session seeks to build upon these foundations to explore the dynamic interactions that took place between and within genders, among family-members, in the wider household, and among circles of friends, as well as the impact of inquisitorial pressure upon them.
