  • Title: Esperienza di povertà al femminile in Italia tra XII e XIV secolo [Beginning in the thirteenth century, women not born into poverty increasingly embraced that state voluntarily. Some of the noted religious women were born into poverty, but others abandoned comfortable lives to follow the poor Christ and share the lot of His poor. Religious women who depended on alms were expected to repay these offerings with their prayers].
