Religious lives in the early medieval period, whether in Francia, Anglo-Saxon England or the Holy Land, were strongly conditioned by gender and social status and the effects of both on life-cycle. By bringing to bear comparative perspectives, geographical and institutional, and looking at case-studies of individual men and women, I hope to highlight the importance of life-cycle(s).
