Title : De quibusdam mulieribus: Reading Women's History from Hostile Sources [The author analyzes the cases of two women who testified about their religious beliefs to church authorities. In the Abruzzi Catania spoke in support of Celestine V during his canonization process. In Provence Na Prous Boneta testified to her devotion to Peter Olivi, a Franciscan spiritual. Documents like this indicate women's ingenuity and determination to lead meaningful spiritual lives even in cases like that of Prous Bonete where the church declared her a heritic.
