Egeria

In her travel diary, Egeria addresses a circle of female readers, calling them "sisters." Because of this, some scholars think that Egeria was a member of a female monastic community in her homeland. Others note that, if she were a nun, it is unlikely that she would be able to leave her convent to travel freely for 3 years throughout the Near East. Following this line of thinking, she was a wealthy woman.
