Byzantine Stories. Episode 9 – Women in the Byzantine World. Part 2 – The Convent

In part 2 we visit the Byzantine convent. A place where women could escape the traditional roles society expected of them.

We also hear the life stories of two more female Saints. These tales may be the closest we get to the lives of real middle-Byzantine women.
