Title : Diemunda and Heinrich- Married or Not? About a Marriage Litigation in the Consistorial Court of Freising in the Late Middle Ages [Diemunda sued Heinrich de Empach to enforce what she claimed was a promise of marriage. She procured a dispensation from the Penitentiary because of consanguinity in the third or fourth degree. The ecclesiastical court in Freising had denied her petition for lack of adequate evidence of both consent and consanguinity. Despite the dispensation from the Penitentiary, Heinrich tried to avoid paying for support of their short-lived illegitimate child and the fine for taking Diemunda's virginity.

Title : Illegitimate Scots in the Registers of Supplications and the Registers of the Apostolic Penitentiary during the Pontificate of Sixtus IV (1471- 1484) [The Papal Penitentiary was one source of dispensation for men of illegitimate birth seeking clerical livings.

University educated men of illegitimate birth also successfully petitioned the Datary for dispensations. These men could afford the Datary's higher fees, while the humbler suppliant had to petition the more affordable penitentiary. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : A Contribution to the Study of the Byzantine Notarial Formulas: The "infirmitas sexus" of Women and the "senatusconsultum Velleianum" [The author traces two notarial formulae that were commonly used in legal documents under Roman and Byzantine law: the “infirmitas sexus” (the legal designation of the inferiority of women as a natural characteristic) and the “senatusconsultum Velleianum” (a set of imperial provisions and restrictions imposed upon women). Both of these formulae appear in the middle to late Byzantine periods, where the Byzantine legislation perpetuates ancient restrictions on women’s legal capacities. The natural inferiority of women was often cited as the reason for why imperial legislation must protect and limit their actions. Appendix includes a list of relevant notarial documents in chronological order, including the parties involved , the notary who drew up the document, the location, and the legal formulation used.
