Juan Luis Vives. Vives' tract on the education of Women, De Institutione Feminae Christianae , revised became a model for cunduct books in various Protestant traditions and as such has always been of interest to historians of education. However, the treatise also made a very important contribution to the querelle des femmes of its time and has consequently generated much interest among modern historians of women and gender. It consists of 3 books, one for each stage of woman's life -maidenhood, marriage and widowhood. The only English translation of the text on offer till now was the inaccurate and free version of Richard Hyrde a friend of Thomas More , published early in the 20th century by Foster Watson, but now unavailable. It starts with a special introduction to this edition.
