A 2006 course by Joanne Pierce at College of the Holy Cross offers "an examination of the historical and theological development of the ideals and practices of Christian life, from the High Middle Ages to the Early Modern era. . . . Special attention will be paid to the following themes: gendered perceptions of sanctity and sin; community and solitude; poverty and riches; feasting and fasting as religious and cultural activity."
