The dissertation examines women in Byzantine Central Greece between 1000-1200. It aims to achieve two goals. Firstly, while the current scholarship on Byzantine women focuses on Constantinopolitan sources and underestimates regional differences, this study attempts to evaluate how patterns extracted from a specific provincial region may complement or revise our present knowledge. Secondly, taking the subject as an example, the study seeks to explore the potential of studying under-represented medieval social groups that appear invisible at first glance. The dissertation’s three main parts respectively examine women in their three primary areas of activity, i.e., economic involvement, devotional life, and family roles.
