Il ne s'agit pas seulement de relater la vie d'une sainte, d'ailleurs mal connue en France : l'auteur n'y consacre qu'un tiers du livre, la 1ère partie, justement intitulée "Esquisse d'une biographie, Catherine, de Sienne à Rome, 1347-1380". Il nous fait surtout découvrir une personnalité "transgressive" (selon sa propre expression), mystique laïque engagée politiquement, en relations épistolaires avec les puissants de l'époque, rois et pontifes compris, auxquels elle n'hésite pas à adresser énergiquement conseils, critiques, remontrances, avertissements...

Because, well, duh. But when people learn that I'm a professor of medieval history, they say the darnedest things. And when I tell them I'm also a romance novelist, it's even crazier. Not long ago, I was at a party, chatting with a psychiatrist whose specialty was college-age adults. I told her I was teaching a course on women's sexuality in the European Middle Ages. She said, "But what is there to teach?" Carefully, I said, "I'm not sure what you mean." She replied: "I thought they didn't have sex back then." This from a psychiatrist of 18- to...
