Title : Monasteri benedettini femminili a Milano prima della riforma [Reform of women's monasteries in Milan, especially when the nuns resisted, required support from ecclesiastical and lay authorities. These authorities occasionally failed to act in concert. Strict enclosure, one of the hardest reforms to impose, served to ameliorate one problem, nuns acting out the hostilities among their kindred. Even nuns desirous of living strict lives had difficulties finding acceptable confessors and visitors to meet their spiritual needs].

Title : Leonardo and the Ladies with the Ermine and the Book [Although Isabella d'Este and Cecilia Gallerani were both active, fashionable, and learned patrons of letters, Leonardo da Vinci (who was patronized by both) depicts the women very differently in his paintings. Cecilia appears in Leonardo's "Lady with the Ermine" as a lively woman whose gaze faces the viewer, but Isabella d'Este appears in Leonardo's drawings as more stately and reserved, sometimes pointing at a book. Isabella likely played a large role in shaping her own image in her portraits, preferring more formal and Classical motifs including the profile pose. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
