    Born in Bavaria in 1492, Argula von Grumbach was the first Protestant woman writer to harness the printing press to her cause. In 1523, she wrote in defence of a young Lutheran scholar arrested at Ingolstadt and openly challenged university, Church and court. In this study, Matheson provides translations of all von Grumbach's writings with introductions and notes. The general introduction gives a biographical account of von Grumbach, analyses her use of Scripture and discusses her role as a woman of the Reformation.
