Even More Medieval Women: That’s right folks, we aren’t done with the Middle Ages yet! While Christian women of this era may not be well-known today, in their time they exerted powerful influence for the Kingdom of God in diverse ways. There’s Hilda, the Abbess of the famous Abbey at Whitby; Leoba, who teamed up with the great missionary Boniface to establish monasteries all over Central Europe for education and the spread of the Gospel; Hroswitha, the first woman poet and playwright in German history; and Hildegard von Bingen, a widely influential abbess, musical composer and preacher. You will definitely be glad you got to know these fascinating women!
