The paper offers an analysis of some aspects (pragmatic, status, personal, feminist and stylistic) of the letters exchanged between the Danish Profesor Otto Sperling, Jr, 1634-1715) and three learned women (Anne Margrethe Qvitzow, the Cille Gad and Sophia Elisabeth Brenner), differentiating between the personal elements and the more formal and image-building ones in order to create a basis for a discussion on the postitions held by the correspondents.
