Product Overview

When the Catholic Church brought The Burning Time-aka, the Inquisition-to Ireland, it met a resistance such as it met nowhere else in Europe. Leading the rebellion was one remarkable noblewoman: Dame Alyce Kyteler, who refused to grant the Church power over her, her lands or her people, and refused to stop the practice of the Old Religion.

In a tale based on actual historic documents and court transcripts, "The Burning Time" tells the tale of how Dame Alyce is marked as a dangerous heretic by an ambitious emissary of the Pope, who stakes his future on bringing her to heel. To lose the battle with Dame Alyce, he tells his superiors, is to loose all of Ireland.

But Dame Alyce is just as determined to fight back against the invaders' injustice, its forced imposition of a new religion, and its blatant land grab. After she outwits the Church in a court trial, there is no return: Against the penalty of being burned at the stake, she risks all to protect her people, her faith and her beloved Ireland.

Armies are mustered and battle plans laid, and what ensues is a vivid account of an astonishing but little-known woman, and a gripping tale of bravery, treachery, guile and redemption.

Robin Morgan is one of the founders of contemporary American feminism, and the author of numerous germinal books about the women's movement including three classic anthologies: "Sisterhood Is Powerful," "Sisterhood Is Global," and "Sisterhood Is Forever." Morgan is also an award-winning poet, and the author of the bestsellers "Saturday's Child: A Memoir" and "The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism."
