1. Instead of the usual reviewer's tactic of describe, analyze and critique, I would like to present my reflections on the contents of this volume with apologies to the contributors should they not get equal time and space.
2. It is the hope of this reviewer that comparable reversals will occur in the Roman Catholic Church regarding the innocuous and ethically neutral views of the feminine and married priesthood. There is still a long tradition of misogyny in Roman Catholicism, e.g. Jerome and Sixtus IV (De laudibus castitatis) which begs ethically to be overcome.
3. Incidentally, there is a large corpus of medieval exemplata literature still in manuscript form which begs to be edited critically. The present reviewer is undertaking Marcus of Orvieto's Liber de moralitatibus, a moralization for preachers, which "takes off" from Bartholomew of England's De proprietatibus rerum.
