The review article critically analyses a recent study, which had intended to apply the methods of gender studies onto a series of medieval Georgian hagiographic texts, related to women. The review focuses on positive new ideas offered by these methods, but it points out a number of weaknesses, which can endanger a correct comprehension of the texts. Finally, the review reflects on the possibilities of combining a consolidated philological method, firmly established among the most accredited Georgian scholars and corroborated, whenever possible, with the latest results of disciplines that overlap, primarily Greek philology. Through this extensive framework, there is the potential to combine an established method alongside new philological and literary perspectives to interpret the texts within aesthetic and sociological categories.
