  • Title: Teodora e il travestimento mistico nel diciottesimo dei "Miracles de Nostre Dame par personnages" [The legend of Theodora of Alexandria, found in the "Miracles de Notre Dame par personnages," was composed in French and based on the "Legenda Aurea." Theodora adopted men's clothing to escape attempted seduction, and she embraced the life of a monk. Accused of rape, she endured that calumny in silence. Such hagiographic tales did not soften condemnation of cross dressing outside of carnival season. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
