Endorsements

"These collections of brief biographies show women contributing to doctrinal and intellectual questions, assuming prodigious responsibilities in relief for refugees, and taking stands of conscience against tyrannical rulers. These studies thus assume importance in reconstructing a non-sexist history of the Reformation."
— Sixteenth Century Journal

"Roland Bainton knows how to tell a story, and his very voice seems to sing through these stories of women of the Reformation.... [This] is a book to be enjoyed — an effective, affective account of Reformation episodes with women at the center."
— The Christian Century

"With copious citation from original sources, these vivid sketches reveal the character of courageous women and their influence, often amidst political and social intrigue, upon the course of the Protestant Reformation. The volume is amply illustrated from contemporary portraits and woodcuts."
— The Reformed Theological Review
