  • Title: Il monachesimo femminile [women's monasticism appeared in the West later than men's and always was communal, involving some form of enclosure; women shared unequally in the new religious movements of the eleventh through thirteenth centuries; even Clare of Assisi was unable to share fully in the poverty of Francis; despite Heloise's plea for a rule adapted to women's needs, most women's monasteries followed the Benedictine or the Augustinian rule].
