image of Method & Theory in the Study of Religion

The study of medieval European popular religion is broad and diverse, drawing upon a variety of sources and addressing a multiplicity of questions. Underlying that diversity, however, is a single quest: to unearth and analyze religion as it was experienced and practiced by the "common folk".1 For the past twenty years women have been explicitly and deliberately included in that analysis. Evident in the literature, however, are diverse and divergent opinions concerning both the ways by which to ascertain and interpret women's practices and beliefs, and their significance for the study of popular religion. This article explores those opinions and some of their implications.
