Title : The Poetics of (Non)Conversion: The "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" and "La Celestina" [The author reads Fernando de Rojas' story of Celestina, an aged ex-prostitute, against the conventions of hagiographic romance. The author argues that female prostitute-saints were popular in medieval Spain, and the cult of Saint Mary of Egypt was particularly strong. Although there is no direct connection between the "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" (a poem about Saint Mary of Egypt) and "La Celestina," the author argues that Rojas intentionally subverts the literary conventions used in other texts about prosititute-saints. In contrast to what medieval readers might expect, Celestina never undergoes a religious conversion. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Mothers and Daughters in Fifteenth-century Spanish Sentimental Romances: Implications for "Celestina" [Towards the end of the fifteenth century, it became less common for Spanish authors of sentimental romances to present favorable representations of active mother figures. Although it is not a sentimental romance, “Celestina” by Fernando de Rojas was influenced by the genre and can be seen as the culmination of this literary trend. In this text, the active mother figure is a bawd and the biological mother barely appears. These texts perpetuate the misogynist trope that depicts women who act upon sheer emotion or will as the agents of sexual violence; men, on the other hand, base their actions upon reason. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
