Women in the Renaissance Bibliography July 1996

Query From John Anderies janderie@indiana.edu 12 July 1996

I am looking for an article or chapter/section of a book that deals with general issues of women's lives in the Renaissance. This is for an undergraduate course on women in early music, but I am NOT looking for something about music per se--already have plenty of that. Something along the lines of Joan Kelly-Gadol's article "Did Women Have a Renaissance?" would be great, but it needs to be much easier to read than this. As a companion to a section of the course on the Middle Ages I'll have my students read a chapter out of Margaret Wade Labarge's, "A Small Sound of the Trumpet: Women in Medieval Life." Perhaps that gives some idea of the level that I am looking for. Any suggestions? I could really use the help!! Sincerely.
