The analysis acknowledges the roles these women played, not only in the creation of these texts (as subject, author, source or commissioner) but also as a legitimate part of the Church's tradition. Mayeski asserts that medieval hagiography, often neglected in theological schoarship, was a vital theological genre for early Christian theologians, and that treating them as such brings forth the lives of these women, their voices, and the transitioning Church around them. The saints who feature are St Margaret of Scotland: A theology of inherited virtue and the redemption of childbirth, as described by her Chaplain in the early 12th century; St Leoba: A theology of Church in Mission, described by Rudolph of Saxony in the 9th Century; and Baudonivia: A theology of power, as described by Queen Radegunde in 15th century.
