  • Title: La fanciulla giusquiamo: Un rito medievale di propiziazione della pioggia tra storia e antropologia [Magical practices intended to control rain are found documented in canon law at least as early as the eleventh-century Corrector of Burchard of Worms. Some of these rites involved employment of a naked virgin. Churchmen tried to substitute pious practices for these rites, compromising opposition to "superstition" in order to meet the needs of their flocks. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
