Abstract [en]

Anna Maria van Schurman was in more than one aspect an  unconventional woman in her own lifetime. As a gifted scholar in many  foreign and ancient languages, as well as in philosophy and theology,  she corresponded with other learned men and women all over Europe. She  achieved international renown for her own defence of scholarly  activity of women. Life and work of this Dutch femme savante of  the 17th Century has thus far been studied by theologians,  philosophers, literary scholars, historians, pedagogues and art  historians, each concentrating on specific aspects of Van Schurman's  biography or work. A rather fragmented image of this scholar was the  result.   This interdependent collection of essays describes the life and work  of Anna Maria van Schurman from an interdisciplinary - or  rather multidisciplinary - approach and will outline a more  integrated yet at the same time subtly differentiated picture. Nine  contributions - from the disciplines of philosophy, theology,  Dutch language and literature, intellectual and art history, and  women's studies - partly based on new source material, shed  light on Van Schurman's ideas on erudition and femininity, ethics and  philosophy, as well as on her religious beliefs, within the context of  the early modern intellectual community to which she belonged. Audience: This collection of essays will therefore command the  interest not only of historians, but also of scholars and students in  theology, philosophy, art history, and women's studies.
