A debate has grown up in recent years over the role of women in popular dissenting movements. In the Middle Ages, clerical writers alleged, to show how utterly subversive and disorderly dissenting movements were, that they allowed not only laymen but also laywomen to lead their religious activities. ” From time to time occasional references are made to “female masters” of the sect, or to “sisters” with whom the traveling brethren stayed while in training.

But was it drawn even then? Mentzer argues that “[p]eople understood the religion of their ancestors – those reassuring daily habits that they had learned from parents and grandparents. For ordinary believers, their faith described and shaped a society and piety 27 familiar world, providing a sense of continuity and community, and helping to define the character of social relationships” (Mentzer, “Persistence,” p. 233). Liturgical and extra-sacramental practices celebrated important stages of life, turning points such as marriage, birth, and death in the community, as well as the cycles of the seasons and harvests.
