About the workbook:

This one-of-a-kind resource helps readers discover St. Clare through a series of crisp chapters that first teach them about the sources for St. Clare's life and writings and then apply that knowledge to manageable topics from her life. The book provides also an important introduction to feminine spirituality and religious life options for Medieval women.
