Title : Gerson's Stance on Women [Anderson argues that scholarly opinion about Jean Gerson has been excessively negative. Gerson was capable of being controlling with his sisters and suspecting the inspiration of mystics like Bridget of Sweden, whom he blamed in part for the Great Schism. He was, however, capable of being supportive of devout women; and his criticisms of male figures who erred must be taken into account. Moreover, Gerson was capable of supporting Joan of Arc and, for a time, Ermine of Reims, despite their not fitting into passive roles. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : A Basochien Proto-Drama and Its Mariological Context: "L'Advocacie Nostre Dame" [This French text about the Last Judgement dramatizes a confrontation between the Virgin Mary (as advocate for mankind) and Satan (in the role of the prosecutor). Scholars disagree about whether the text can be classified as a poem or a drama, and the author argues that it is a precursor to the burlesque lawsuits of the Basochiens. The text illustrates the intersection of two phenomena in medieval France, as the poem parodies both the fictional trials enacted by the Basochiens (lawyers in training) and the worship practices of the cult of the Virgin.
