On this day: St. Sadalberga
Read this years ago and loved it. Great information and insight into women from the 6th and 7th centuries. Sainted women of the Dark Ages. Sainted Women of the Dark Ages makes available the lives of eighteen Frankish women of the sixth and seventh centuries, all of whom became saints. Written in Latin by contemporaries or near contemporaries, and most translated here for the first time, these biographies cover the period from the fall of the Roman Empire and the conversion of the invading Franks to the rise of Charlemagne's family. Three of these holy women were queens who turned to religion only after a period of intense worldly activity.
Others were members of the Carolingian family, deeply implicated in the political ambitions of their male relatives.
Some were partners in the great Irish missions to the pagan countryside and others worked for the physical salvation of the poor. From the peril and suffering of their lives they shaped themselves as paragons of power and achievement.
Beloved by their sisters and communities for their spirtual gifts, they ultimately brought forth a new model of sanctity. Learn more here.
