  • Title: Women in the Premonstratensian Order of Northwestern Germany, 1120-1250 [The established historiography of the Premonstratensians shows women being marginalized from the early years onward. The documentary record is more complex. The German records show men's houses serving as "mother" houses to women's monasteries. This relationship was not free of conflict, but it shows a more vital presence of women in the order than the historiography has claimed. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
