in consequence of the missive, Where will Isabella go?, penned by Kelley B
At the moment, I think her only concern is to escape the lust of Manfred.
'Could she reach the alter before she was overtaken, she knew even Manfred's violence would not dare profane the sacredness of the place; and she determined , if no other means of deliverance offered, to shut herself up among the holy virgins, whose convent was contiguous to the cathedral'.
Sometimes widowed noblewomen and presuambly brides, could take the veil as nuns.
Perhaps typical of her times, Isabella is relying on heaven for deliverance from Manfred's schemes.
