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.

Emily A. Hemelrijk is a lecturer in Ancient History at the University of Leiden. She has published numerous articles on Roman women in various learned journalsReview:
'A solid historical and literary account of the evidence, which will be the foundation for all future studies of the education of women in antiquity.' - Choice
'Hemelrijk's greatest contribution ... lies in her precise and comprehensive presentation of the ancient textual evidence, which allows the reader to form her own conclusions.' - Cloelia
'Specific, literal, yet comprehensive and chronologically wide-ranging... a high-quality, reliable, and much-needed work on a topic often given short shrift... This is a highly recommended study of the topic in question which the specialist and informed non-specialist alike will find very informative and useful.' - History and Culture
'All in all, Hemelrijk has succeeded in writing an accomplished study about a very little examined yet highly interesting subject. Her handling of the theme is refreshingly versatile compared to the somewhat superficial image of women's education hitherto.' De Novis Libris Iudicia
