    I know of her because she has one of the 39 place settings in Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party. I don’t recall her ever being mentioned anywhere else until this blog post!

    @Sunset – it wasn’t me lecturing, was it? I am always very careful when giving theatre history lectures to flag her as the first post-Classical playwright. Glad to hear I may not be alone.

    I thought of making this post on the “three wise H’s”: Hrotsvit, Hildegard and Heloise, but they really deserve to each have their own.

    Orlando, it was Philippa Maddern at UWA a long time ago. Looking forward to Hildegard and Heloise.
