Though overall literacy in the middle ages was low by modern standards, there is considerable evidence that some women could read. Pictures of the Annunciation usually show Mary reading when she receives the news that she’d be the mother of the Savior. Many nuns could read, and Books of Hours (prayer books) for secular women are still extant. During the Protestant Reformation when all the faithful should read the Bible literacy grew for both men and women.
