    eBook Suzannah Lipscomb à The Voices of Nîmes PDF EPUB á The VoicesEpub à voices pdf, nîmes free, The Voices book, The Voices of Nîmes ePUBA thoroughly researched account into the lives of women in 16th century France focussing on the Protestants of Nimes The book was accessible though I did tire at times of the endless examples Susannah Lipscomb did an incredible amount of research combing through the consistory records to write a very detailed book

    eBook Suzannah Lipscomb à The Voices of Nîmes PDF EPUB á The VoicesEpub à voices pdf, nîmes free, The Voices book, The Voices of Nîmes ePUBDetailed in depth and profoundly well researched this monograph will become essential reading for anyone interested in early modern gender relations and the roles of women in those societies While focused on just a few decades in Languedoc and based on the Protestant consistories and thus not representing the entire society Suzannah Lipscomb does well to incorporate her findings into the bigger picture In some areas women's agency in the h0me the precarious position of young women in service and women's role in upholding patriarchy Lipscomb's arguments support those made by other historians However in other areas sexual violence in France for example her work turns that of others on its head As Lipscomb has utilised an underused resource she has been able to look deeper into women's lives and although the conclusions are necessarily based on very specific evidence the implications are far broader

    eBook Suzannah Lipscomb à The Voices of Nîmes PDF EPUB á The VoicesEpub à voices pdf, nîmes free, The Voices book, The Voices of Nîmes ePUBInteresting PerspectivesI read this on a recommendation it did not disappoint Perhaps for the casual reader it is too detailed with too many uoted cases I conclude that life at the time was tough for both men and women One suspects that for a poor woman from the country there would be much exploitation or at the least the scope to be exploitedGossip made the world go round Claim and counterclaim prevailed Has society progressed that much? At least

    eBook Suzannah Lipscomb à The Voices of Nîmes PDF EPUB á The VoicesEpub à voices pdf, nîmes free, The Voices book, The Voices of Nîmes ePUBVery detailed and thorough exploration of the consistorial records and the conclusions that can be taken from them The vast number of examples that Lipscombe mentions can sometimes get confusing especially as she often flits from one case to another in her analysis but this seems to be inherent to the source
