Dhuoda, ninth century mother and theologian by Marie Anne Mayeski( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dhuoda of Septimania was a remarkable Carolingian aristocrat who wrote a Liber Manualis of biblically based practical directions for her at times wayward warrior son. Her method of interpreting the Bible is of special interest. The meaning of the ancient Old Testament texts opened up for her not through allegory, as it did for Origen, but through a sense of experience shared across the centuries. The tales of the religious experiences of Israel were seen by her as family experiences, involving a sense of genuine continuity. Or, from another direction, she used the concrete experiences of her life to find a special meaning in the biblical text. Mayeski explores this approach in considerable detail through Dhuoda's interpretation of the story of the Syro-Phoenician woman in Matthew 15:21-25 and Mark 7:24-30. Interpreting it for her son, she speaks of the encouragement that can be found there in the way that God supplies the food of grace to those who persist in seeking it. She also uses the beatitudes as an outline of a treatise on her son's responsibilities as a member of the ruling class. Underlying her practical bent is the vision of human life as a journey toward the kingdom of God, with its need for alertness and its sense of motion."--BOOK JACKET

Women at the table : three medieval theologians by Marie Anne Mayeski( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although often missing in official documents, women of medieval times exercised power and voice in the theological discussions around them. Women at the Table analyzes the biographies of three saints as genuine theological sources, acknowledging the roles these women played, not only in the creation of these texts (as subject, author, source, or commissioner) but also as a legitimate part of the Church's tradition. Mayeski asserts that medieval hagiography, often neglected in theological scholarship, was a vital theological genre for early Christian theologians, and that treating them as such brings forth the lives of these women, their voices, and the transitioning Church around them.--Back cover
