Lecture no. 34 from the course: Warriors, Queens and Intellectuals: 36 Great Women Before 1400
Taught by Professor Joyce E. Salisbury | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
The disasters of the tumultuous 14th century paved the way for the modern world. The first of two stories from this era, the life of Brigitta is one of struggle with the social and environmental problems of her time, a struggle she approached through religion. Brigitta’s personal faith led her to seek comfort through mysticism and pass her experience down through her writings.
