In this first installment in celebrated historian Roland Bainton's Women of the Reformation trilogy, sixteen women who are usually lost behind familiar Reformation figures and events come to life. Extensively researched and vividly told, these are the stories of unsung reformers who courageously renounced religious vows, opened their homes to those fleeing religious persecution, and faced estrangement from their families in the cause of the Protestant Reformation in Germany and Italy.
