Title : The Virgin "Lactans" as Second Eve: Image of the "Salvatrix" [the author analyzes the iconography of a painting by Carlo da Camerino, depicting the Virgin nursing the infant Christ with Eve reclining below; Margaret Miles had argued that the painting juxtaposes Mary's goodness with Eve's sinful body (and the bodies of the female viewers); the author argues that the panel creates a "complex allegory not only of the Virgin's centrality to human redemption but also of Eve's crucial role in this process"].

Title : Disrobing the Virgin: The "Madonna Lactans" in Fifteenth-Century Florentine Art [the author argues that the popularity of the "Madonna lactans" waned from the 1440s through the 1470s because increased naturialism made the bare breast problematic; when the motif reappeared in the late fifteenth century , it was modified by making the Virgin less immediate and less accessible].

Title : Clare's Dream [The author examines the canonization documents of Saint Clare of Assisi. The records depict her as a strong and determined woman who forsook her rich family and embraced a spiritual life, following the example set by Francis of Assisi. They also indicate that after Francis' death, Clare had a dream in which she sucked milk from his breast. After describing various scholars' interpretations of the dream, the author suggests that the dream demonstrates Clare's intimacy with and dependency upon Francis. It presents a more human side to the heroic woman described in later hagiographical texts. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : On the Origin and Spread of the Notion that Breast-feeding Women Should Abstain from Sexual Intercourse [The author argues that the idea that sexual relations and a new pregnancy were injurious to a mother’s milk came from such ancient medical authorities as Galen and Soranus. Clerics like Ivo of Chartres picked up the idea and advised caution. However, it never had the status of a taboo. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : ...quanquam Sarnum biberimus ante dentes...: The Primal Scene of Suckling in Dante's De vulgari eloquentia [In his treatise on language, Dante foregrounds suckling imagery and the importance of the maternal body. This maternal imagery stems from a long tradition of representing the allegorical figure of Grammatica (grammar) as a nurse. According to psychoanalytic theory, the assumed natural primacy of the vernacular as a mother tongue (a native language acquired before Latin) evokes a primal scene of union with the mother (a state that precedes linguistic communication in human development). Nonetheless, the rationalistic male grammarian perpetually struggles to obscure the feminine origins of speech in order to maintain strict gender boundaries. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
