Despite the fact that women are often mentioned as having played instrumental roles in the establishment of Methodism on the Continent of Europe, very little detail concerning the women has ever been provided to add texture to this historical tapestry. This book of essays redresses this by launching a new and wider investigation into the story of pioneering Methodist women in Europe.

By bringing to light an alternative set of historical narratives, this edited volume gives voice to a broad range of religious issues and concerns during the critical period in European history between 1869 and 1939. Covering a range of nations in Continental Europe, some important interpretive themes are suggested, such as the capacity of women to network, their ability to engage in God's work, and their skill at navigating difficult cultural boundaries.

This ground breaking study will be of significant interest to scholars of Methodism, but also to students and academics working in history, religious studies, and gender.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Each chapter has its own bibliography, which bears witness to the quality of the research upon which it rests. The volume is also enhanced by maps and photographs. The editors are to be congratulated on beginning to uncover a fascinating story and it is to be hoped that more can be discovered.
-Martin Wellings, Methodist Recorder
