Lecture 2 – Biblical Womanhood: A Medieval Perspective

Dr. Beth Allison Barr

Associate Professor of History and Graduate Program Director
Baylor University

Dr. Barr’s research focuses on women and gender identity in medieval and early modern English sermons, drawing evidence especially from comparative analyses of biblical women, narrative women, gendered language, and the gendered nature of biblical text included within sermons. Dr. Barr is interested in how the advent of Protestantism affected women in Christianity as well as how and why medieval attitudes towards women in sermons both changed and stayed the same across the Reformation era.

Dr. Barr is the author of The Acts of the Apostles: Four Centuries of Baptist Interpretation (Waco: Baylor University Press, 2009) and The Pastoral Care of Women in Late Medieval England (Woodbridge, Suffolk: Boydell Press, 2008). Her third book, Women in English Sermons, 1350-1700, is currently in progress.

Dr. Barr graduated magna cum laude from Baylor University with her B.A. She then received her M.A. and Ph.D. from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
