Title : Sacrificial Spectacle and Interpassive Vision in the Anglo-Norman Life of Saint Faith [This chapter explores what I term, after Žižek, ‘interpassive vision’ in medieval French saints’ lives. The claim that hagiographic narratives are vehicles for male voyeurism achieved some currency in feminist scholarship of the 80s; this chapter deploys the notion of interpassive vision as a means of complicating such claims, reassessing the way these critics characterise gender and sexual desire and suggesting alternative approaches to the relationship between vision and reader response in medieval texts. Summary provided by the author.]

Author(s): Wogan-Browne, Jocelyn.
Title : Powers of Record, Powers of Example: Hagiography and Women's History [The author compares an Anglo-Norman hagiography collection from Campsey with the "Ancrene Wisse" and its associated "Katherine Group." While the "Ancrene Wisse" presents hagiography as romance, the Campsey manuscript presents many role models for women in which they act together in groups and inhabit an historical setting. The author argues that the collection represents a collectivity of noble women's interests in the areas of monasticism, ecclesiastic issues, and family. It is centered on East Anglia but has networks of connections running through England and the continent. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): McCash, June Hall.
Title : La vie seinte Audree: A Fourth Text by Marie de France? [The author suggests that the saint's life was written by Marie de France. She argues that vocabulary, style, and literary technique are all very similar to Marie de France's texts. She also argues that the theme of spiritual marriage in the saint's life would be congenial to the author of "Eliduc." Moreover, the author names herself Marie and asks to be remembered as does Marie de France. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Marvin, Julia.
Title : Albine and Isabelle: Regicidal Queens and the Historical Imagination of the Anglo-Norman Prose "Brut" Chronicles [The author argues that the prose continuators of the "Brut," particularly the author of the "Long Continuation," draw connections between Albine, the rebellious daughter of a noble king who kills her royal husband and is exiled to a distant isle that she names Albion, and Queen Isabella of France, who plotted with Roger Mortimer to kill her husband, King Edward II, and usurp his power. The Appendix presents an edition of the prose prologue to the "Long Version" of the Anglo-Norman prose "Brut" with a facing page English translation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Amadas et Ydoine, "Cliges" and the Impediment of Crime [the author uses the attitude of the "Amadas" poet toward adultery to argue that Chrétien may not have intended the marriage of Cliges and Fenice to have been a happy conclusion; instead the marriage of the adulterers may have been an indication of how decadent their society had become].

Title : Eternal Flame: State Formation, Deviant Architecture, and the Monumentality of Same-Sex Eroticism in the "Roman d'Eneas" ["My argument in this essay has been that in the heteronormative sexual and political economy of early Old French romance we can reclaim the disrputive effects of dialogism and desire, as well as the potentially subversive trace of the silencing of the other (a rhetorical strategy that is itself far from silent) in the historical process of state formation and in the ongoing processes of constructing national political identities."

Title : Gender, Love, and Sex as Political Theory? Romance in Geffrei Gaimar's Anglo-Norman Chronicle [The author examines three episodes in Gaimar's "Estoire," Haveloc and his wife Argentille, the rape of Buern Bucecarle's wife by the king, and the love of King Edgar for Elftroed despite the betrayal by his vassal. In each case Gaimar draws parallels between erotic love and the loyalty, affection, and mutual consent of feudal relations. Gaimar establishes a secular and aristocratic ethos in contrast to the differing viewpoints in texts sponsored by royal and ecclesiastical patrons. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
