Many women felt called to intervene in the disputes of the Reformation by own publications. Thus, they tried to fight against their inferior position.
Sonja Domr'se's study wants to apprecitate the theological and literary work of these women through the presentation of biographical parts. Attention is given to Elisabeth von Calenberg-Göttingen, Argula von Grumbach, Ursula Weyda, Elisabeth Cruciger, Wibrandis Rosenblatt, Katharina Zell, Olympia Fulvia Morata, Ursula von Münsterberg, Wibrandis Rosenblatt, Caritas Pirckheimer and Jeanne de Jussie. Their lifes show, that there has been an awakening of gender equality in church and society 500 years ago. To conclude the depiction of these women's influence the author describes Martin Luther's view on women and Ersamus of Rotterdam's impact on scholarly women.
