  • Title: Gendered Memories from Flanders [the author argues that the clergy and monk authors of hagiographies and chronicles reported women's testimony but only as indirect informants whose reliability was proven by their noble status or guaranteed by a clergyman; the texts analyzed by the author include: two versions of the "Life" of the Flemish saint Arnulf of Oudenburg, bishop of Soissons; Herman of Tournai's chronicle, "The Restoration of the Monastery of Saint Martin of Tournai;" Galbert of Bruges's account of the murder of Count Charles the Good of Flanders; Lambert of Ardres's "History of the Counts of Guînes;" and the autobiography of Abbot Guibert of Nogent].
