Dhuoda of Septimania was a remarkable Carolingian aristocrat who wrote a Liber Manualis of biblically based practical directions for her at times wayward warrior son.  Her method of interpreting the Bible is of special interest: the religious experiences of the Old Testament are seen as shared family experience, rather than allegorical tales as for Origen.
