Summary
Womens conception of Rome as a cult center, an intervening ally, and a devotional adviser between 300- 900 CE proved crucial in a coming-of-age period for the papacy, whose spiritual authority had begun to resonate from the Mediterranean northward as the vicar of St. Peter. My consideration of women through the lens of Petrine devotion and Roman networks stands out from previous studies that cite papal legitimacy and Roman influences in the political and rhetorical debates among the pope, bishops, and rulers. Through examinations of womens devotional practices involving Rome, it is possible to see the significance of the city and its representatives in the devotional lives of western Christians along with womens vital part in maintaining and extending papal authority and Roman cults in the first millennium. This study draws from hagiographical, epistolary, and literary sources in addition to the use of material evidence such as inscriptions, devotional objects, and architecture. None of these sources are new to early medievalists, but when read for the Roman affiliations within female devotion, they bring us to expand our impressions of Romes reception in the west and redefine our expectations of womens religious practices
