A brilliant scholar and one of the finest writers of her day, Olympia Morata (1526-1555) was attacked by some as a "Calvinist Amazon" but praised by others as an inspiration to all learned women.
This book publishes, for the first time, all her known writings - orations, dialogues, letters and poems - in an accessible English translation. Raised in the court of Ferrara in Italy, Morata was educated alongside the daughters of the nobility.
