  • Title: Religiosità e società femminile tra Medioevo e Rinascimento: disciplinamento sociale e istitutzioni religiose [women had few religious opportunities in the rural environment, and the new towns frequently offered just as few; thus women readily were attracted to heretical movements; only gradually were new forms of religiosity developed by the orthodox establishment to meet the needs of these women; even then, clergy who provided women with spiritual guidance emphasized discipline over all else].
