Matrona Docta presents a unique study of the education of upper-class women in Roman society in the central period of Roman history, from the second century BC to AD 235. Emily A. Hemelrijk reconstructs women's opportunities to acquire an education, the impediments they faced, the level of education they could reach and the judgement on educated women in Roman society. She examines also the role of women as patronesses of literature, learning and Roman women's writing.

`Among many other things, the book will function as an excellent catalogue of existing sources to female literacy in antiquity. The author gives proof of sound judgement and sobriety in her way of formulating criteria and providing arguments. She displays a good critical eye in the handling of sources. She has always an open eye to the complexity of her subject and escapes the temptation to oversimplify reasons and answers. - Gunhild Viden, Gnomon
