  • Title: La moglie nel discorso individualistico di Leon Battista Alberti [for the later Middle Ages, we have better records of women's lives, not just normative sources; the prescriptive writings of clerics contain different emphases--on complementarity and on obedience; Leon Battista Alberti stresses individuality, but the only individual in his ideal household is the husband; the wife is expected to be fertile; otherwise, her role differs little from that of servants in the household].
