Title : Adulterio, concubinato, bigamia: testimonianze dalla normative statutaria dello Stato pontificio (secoli XIII-XVI) [Beginning in the 13th century, Italian cities, including the papal states, passed laws regulating extra-marital sex. These presupposed that the sexual appetites of women needed to be regulated. They were more tolerant of the offenses of males, and they took into account the reputation of any woman involved in a case about sexual matters. An accusation of rape made by a woman was subject to particularly strict standards of proof. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Violence, the Queen's Body, and the Medieval Body Politic [The author explores historical and literary accounts of queens and noble women appearing before their husbands in their shifts to refute false accusations. Wearing a shift was next to nudity; moreover the woman had discarded the dress provided by her husband as a mark of social status. Frequently this was intended as an act of resistance to salvage a troubled marriage. These stories reflect concerns about the consort as a potential locus of resistance, instead of a support for the regime, even when reclaiming her rightful status. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : “Tristan” Slippers: An Image of Adultery or a Symbol of Marriage? [Leather slippers decorated with iconography apparently representing the adulterous courtly couple Tristan and Isolde were popular in the urban centers of the Low Countries, and these shoes were perhaps given as bridal gifts or in betrothal ceremonies. Although the image of an adulterous couple may not seem appropriate for shoes associated with marriage, other iconography on the slippers (such as an orchard, falcon, chessboard, and literary inscriptions) and contemporary Dutch literature about the Tristan story indicate that the urban public was reappropriating elements of courtly culture.

Title : Palmerius of Picciati: Innocent III meets his "Martin Guerre" [In the early thirteenth century, Pope Innocent III drafted a decretal covering a case of disputed identity. A man claiming to be the missing Palmerius of Picciati sued for return of his wife, who had remarried in his absence, and of his property. Faced with conflicting testimony, the pope ruled that the wife, Gilla, should remain with her second husband. Innocent preferred leaving Gilla with her second husband rather than forcing her to return to "Palmerius," with whom she might have been unhappy, despite existing law favoring a first husband over a second if a man presumed dead reappeared.

Title : Sexual Behavior and Social Consequences in the Old French "Chanson de geste" [The author argues that sexuality in French epics is generally subordinated to concerns of lineage and social order. Young women sometimes express sexual desire and even take the initiative, but it is up to the male characters to determine what will happen. Frequently the hero demonstrates sexual restraint and is rewarded later with marriage to the young girl who turns out to be a king's daughter. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Divortium a diversitate mentium: La separazione personale dei coniugi nelle dottrine di diritto commune (appunti per una discussione) [Although Roman law permitted divorce, theology and canon law distinguished between separation of spouses and dissolution of marriage. Separation was permitted on certain grounds, including adultery, mistreatment of wife by husband and the desire of one spouse to enter the religious life. The Council of Trent, however, reaffirmed the sacramental nature of marriage, including its indissolubility. Later canon law also restricted the possibility of separation.

Title : Il divorzio di Cateruzza: rappresentazione femminile ed esito processuale (Venezia 1465 [Marriages helped unify the Venetian patriciate, and their dissolution undermined unity. Church courts dealing with dissolution of marriages had to take into account both law and politics. Church courts did not grant separations lightly, demanding evidence of marital failure; and they tried to promote reconciliation of spouses. The charges Cateruzza Vittori brought against her husband included keeping a servant as a concubine and failing to support his stepsons. Cateruzza obtained a rare case in this situation, perhaps because she had strong backing from her family and its connections. Title note supplied by Feminae]

Local laws in Piedmont distinguished between adultery and non-marital sex, as well as between consensual and non-consensual relations. Laws in Piedmont dealt not just with the classification of sexual offenses but with issues of familial honor. Other categorizations were constructed, but Piedmontese laws looked at how a woman fit into social structures. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

A sculpture on the West Front of Amiens Cathedral depicts the sin of lechery through the image of a man and woman kissing, yet the kiss did not always stand in for representations of sexual intercourse (legitimate or illicit). The kiss could have spiritual and allegorical significance (e.g., visual representations of the Song of Songs), legal force (e.g., feudal and courtly rituals), treacherous or transgressive overtones (e.g., representations of Judas and Christ or other same-sex couples kissing), mystical meanings, or devotional purposes (e.g., the kiss of peace).

Title : Give the Saint Her Due: Hagiographical Values for Chaucer’s Second Nun’s Tale and Graham Greene’s "The End of the Affair" [When approaching Saint Celia (protagonist of the Second Nun’s Tale) and Sarah Miles (adulterous protagonist of Greene’s twentieth-century novel), modern critics perceive both of these heroines in a negative manner (deeming them disrespectful or unbelievable as female exemplars). However, such critics abide by rational and objective perspectives which are inappropriate for analyzing hagiographical literature. When viewed from a mystical and spiritual perspective, both heroines radically overturn male power structures and exhibit female strength and virginal power. While Greene revises the hagiographical tradition in his modern-day saint’s life, the essential features of the medieval genre remain unchanged. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
