Throughout the Christian world, women have chosen to lead disciplined lives of prayer and asceticism. Descriptions of early role-models-Macrina, the two Paulas and Melanias, Radagunde-and others by contemporaries, usually men, provide details of their austerities, their aspirations, and their relationship with the Church and the world, not least with male authority figures.
