dc.description.abstractThis thesis applies Victor Turner's ritual theories to the writings of Heloise, Christine de Pizan, Julian of Norwich, and Margery Kempe. I argue that medieval women writers create social dramas within their texts in order to accomplish those ritual transformations which remain unattainable through their personal experiences.en_US
