Product Description


"The author demonstrates that female personifications of intellectual and moral virtues should be taken seriously as a theme in the history of western thought." - Prof. Louise D. Derksen Free University of Amsterdam "... a work of huge range, displaying impressive control of diverse periods and genres and raising questions, literary, cultural, religious, suggestive and at times controversial, that will be of interest to many, not just to experts in the field." - Prof. John Warden University of Toronto"
