This study examines partnerships between medieval women and scribes, focusing on collaborative writing in texts by and about Hidegard of Bingen, Angela of Foligno, Birgitta of Sweden, Catherine of Siena and Margery Kempe. Kimberly Benedict argues that medieval female visionaries often play prominent roles in collaboration while their male amanuenses serve as supports and foils. In this groundbreaking analysis, Benedict considers precedents, genre, mediation, sexuality, and revisionary history, shedding new light on women's collaborative activities and their partnerships' feminist potential.
