  • Title: Life, Learning, and Wisdom: The Forms and Functions of Beguine Education [the author briefly considers the kinds of education offered to young students in beguinages in Douai and Lille; she goes on to consider the many different responsibilities that beguines had to undertake in the urban economy, from accountants to landlords and nurses to traders in cloth; the variety of jobs and extent of beguine economic success argue for a very good system of training and education for the beguines themselves].
