Title : Inseparable Companions: Mary Magdalene, Abelard, and Heloise [The author analyzes both Abelard’s and Heloise’s ideas about Mary Magdalene. Rather than concentrating on her sinful life, Abelard emphasized her devotion to Christ and her role of apostle to the apostles in first bringing news of the Resurrection. The strong presence of the Magdalene in the Paraclete liturgy and Heloise’s questioning about her in the “Problemata” help to indicate Heloise’s concern to emulate the Magdalene’s loving devotion perhaps not only for Christ but for Abelard as well.

Title : Una mariologia d'avanguardia nel secolo XII: Immacolata Concezione e Assunzione corporea di Maria secondo Goffredo d'Auxerre [Although Geoffroi d'Auxerre is identified with Bernard of Clairvaux's attack on Peter Abelard's theological innovations, he was an innovator in Mariology. Unlike Bernard, Geoffroi believed in Mary's Immaculate Conception and the Assumption of her body into heaven after death. He employed biblical texts as proof, but he also argued that Mary's body was not inferior to her soul. Includes text of "De vocatione sponsae in Cantico Canticorum" and "De verbis sapientiae." Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Flaws in the Golden Bowl: Gender and Spiritual Formation in the Twelfth Century [In twelfth century Western Europe, religious writers debated whether arrangements for men and for women in religious life were meant to be identical, equal, or separate. While works on religious formation and spiritual growth can present monastic values as gender neutral and some writings (like Abelard's letters to Heloise) purport to praise the virtues of women, misogyny is nonetheless pervasive in monastic writings (women are aligned with carnality, loquacity, and curiosity). Moreover, gender plays an important role in differentiating the importance of chastity for men and for women, and gender profoundly affects how communal life and spiritual growth are represented. The Appendix offers a list of religious literature of formation produced between 1075 and 1225. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
