Example text

Sluhovsky, Patroness, pp. 208–9) Perhaps it is strange to begin a chapter on late medieval society and piety in a book on the Reformation with examples from the eighteenth to twenty-first centuries. Yet such examples from modern times could be multiplied endlessly, demonstrating what I believe are three timeless themes in the study of popular religiosity: (1) the fear of the sacred, however it is defined, by both secular and some religious authorities; (2) the continuing need for material aspects of holiness; and (3) the differences and continuities in practice over time.

Given that the clergy would have seized on any signs of female participation with scornful glee, it is striking just how little evidence there is of it. Recent work on the Lollards and the Waldenses has argued, independently, that dissenters did not transcend the social values of their world. Women remained confined to secondary roles (McSheffrey, Gender and Heresy; Shahar, Women in a Medieval Heretical Sect; but cf. Biller, “Preaching of the Waldensian Sisters”). When dissent was practiced in private homes, women were intimately and indispensably involved as the hosts, protectors, concealers, and hearers of traveling heretical teachers.

As Euan Cameron has pointed out, the question about “what caused” the Reformation exemplifies the old approach. It assumes that “people wanted the Reformation . . ” He suggests that “in fact it makes it much harder. The Christianity of the later Middle Ages was a supple, flexible, varied entity, adapted to the needs, concerns and tastes . . of the people who created it. . It threatened, but it also comforted; it disciplined, but it also entertained” (Cameron, European Reformation, p. 19). ” The chapter will instead discuss the historiography that has begun to reshape our knowledge and understanding of the medieval past.
