Title : Women's Participation in the Savonarolan Reform in Ferrara [The author explores women's activities in late 15th and early 16th century Ferrara. The holy woman, Lucia Brocadelli, was brought to the city by Duke Ercole d'Este to confer her prestige as a living saint on Ferrara. Lucia founded a house for female tertiaries dedicated to Saint Catherine of Siena. Savonarola's niece and other impoverished girls were encouraged to join (with their dowry paid by the duke) and perpetuate Savonarola's reformist ideals. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
