Episode 13 – Christine de Pizan

It’s fitting this episode comes out the day after Mother’s day, as Christine was a good mother. She was also a poet and the first professional female writer of the Middle Ages. She wrote about a very wide span of topics, from love to warfare, and was not afraid to challenges the ideas of her time. Through her writings she always encouraged virtue and tried to spur people to actually live out what they claimed to believe.
