This text brings together eleven important pieces by Merry Wiesner, several of them previously unpublished, on three major areas in the study of women and gender in early modern Germany: religion, law and work. The final chapter, specially written for this volume addresses three fundamental questions: "Did women have a Reformation?"; "What effects did the development of capitalism have on women?"; and "Do the concepts ''Renaissance'' and ''Early Modern'' apply to women''s experience?" The book concludes with an extensive bibliographical essay exploring both English and German scholarship.
