  • Title: Gender and Mobility in the Low Countires: Travelling Women in Thirteenth-Century Exempla and Saints Lives [The author examines Latin saints' lives and exempla, didactic stories used to teach moral and religious values, for mentions of women travelling. Although the clerical authors thought that women's mobility ought to be restricted, this does not appear to have lessened women's travels, particularly for religious pilgrimages. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
