Abstract

Emanating from a symposium at the University of York in 2012, and building on the historiography of gender and religion published by Gender & History, the contributions in this volume span wide spatial and temporal dimensions. From Mesopotamia in the eighteenth century BCE to twentieth‐century Cuba; from the pre‐Reformation Christianity of medieval England to the Hinduism of twentieth‐century India, this volume is nothing if not wide‐ranging and comprehensive.The contributors to this volume are not only religion and gender historians, but also medievalists, historians of empire, of Chinese studies, Assyriology, and the Italian Renaissance. Clare Midgely writes on the “Woman Question” from the perspective of a nineteenth‐century Bengali women's journal; Michelle M. Sauer writes on the significance of architecture in the medieval English anchorhold; and Mary Vincent examines religious violence in twentieth‐century Spain.The editors, Joanna de Groot and Sue Morgan, are well qualified for their roles. de Groot has researched and taught extensively in gender and women's history and has delved into gender relationships and roles from the eighteenth century forwards, with a particular focus on Iran and the Middle East. Morgan's research has focused on the intersections between gender, sexuality, and religion in nineteenth‐ and twentieth‐century Britain. She has
