Women at the Table analyzes the biographies of three saints as genuine theological sources, acknowledging 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 Churchs tradition.

Mayeski asserts that medieval hagiography, often neglected in theological scholarship, 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.
