  • Title: The Legend of Saint Rictrude: Formation and Transformations (Tenth- Twelfth Century) [the author argues that the narrative cycle that began with Hucbald's "Vita Rictrudis" changed over time to meet the needs of various male monastic communities; in one text the emphasis was on enhancing the saint's social prestige while another underlined the sanctity of the monastery's lands given by Saint Rictrude; in most cases there was a concern to provide the monastery in question with a usable past].
