Title : Satisfying the Laws: The "Legenda" of Maria of Venice [Susan Mosher Stuard analyzes the "Vita" of Maria Sturion written by her confessor, Thomas Caffarini. Thomas had been given the task of writing a rule for Dominican penitents, lay people who lived a religious life without vows (and also known as tertiaries or third orders). Maria Sturion (or Maria of Venice) had been abandoned by her young husband and led a religious life at the home of her parents; Caffarini developed a close relationship with her as confessor and teacher. He saw Maria's "vita" as a model that other wealthy, young Venetian women could follow. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Witches, Saints, and Heretics: Heinrich Kramer's Ties with Italian Women Mystics [Heinrich Kramer is best known for the "Malleus malleficarum," which denounced women as prone to becoming witches. While disputing with heretics in Bohemia, Kramer argued that the holiness of four Dominican tertiaries in Ferrara proved the authenticity of the Church. Kramer's holy women all were given to bodily manifestations of piety, such as stigmata; but they were carefully regulated by friars. They were the mirror opposites of witches, saintly despite bodily appetites that might have led them into error. The heretics were unmoved by their example, but Kramer spread their fame even while the "Malleus" spread negative stereotypes of other women. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Writing Religious Rules as an Interactive Process: Dominican Penitent Women and the Making of Their "Regula" [In the fifteenth century, when the Dominican Order adopted their affiliated groups of penitent women officially, Thomas Caffarini rewrote the history of that association to make it appear more coherent. In fact, the relationship was informal; and these women and their patrons needed to lobby the friars for attention. Thus the original rule granted by Munio of Zamora was informal, given in response to these women. Once the order adopted the penitents more formally, they lost much of their initiative to the friars, whose histories of the movement buried traces of women's activities. Appendicies present the Latin text of Munio's "Ordinationes" written in 1286 for penitent women in Orvieto and a listing that compares the chapter headings in the "Ordinationes" with those in the "Tractatus," the Dominican penitent rule circa 1402-1405.

Reports of her reciept of the Stigmata were rejected by Tommaso Caffarini, but defenders of the story can be found as late as the sixteenth century. The earliest depictions of Margaret usually lack the stigmata, but a royal crown often is shown at her feet or on her head. Dominican claims to stigmatics threatened Franciscan ideas of their founder as "another Christ" ("alter Christus"), and questions about Margaret became intertwined with disputes over the stigmata of Catherine of Siena.

As preachers, friars exerted pastoral authority over devout women, but they also saw these particular women as having a privileged relationship with God. Although the friars admired the close relationship these women had with the divine, they also asserted their own distance and superiority over the women along the lines of gender difference. At the same time, the friars used gender difference as a means of expressing doubts about themselves and the limits of their own powers. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
