Warriors, Queens & Intellectuals
Study the history of the pre-modern world through the little-known stories of influential female political, intellectual, religious, and military leaders. Great Courses lectures delivered by University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Professor Emerita Joyce Salisbury examine the lives of extraordinary women who defied gender restrictions in male-dominated spheres and whose influence persists even today. Salisbury’s lectures will be augmented with puzzles, group quizzes, activities, and information on the times in which each woman lived. We start toward the end of the Roman Empire and advance through nine remarkable women until we reach Germany in the Middle Ages.
