Title : Illicit Religion: The Case of Friar Matthew Grabow, O.P [In the Middle Ages "Religious" could mean a person who joined a vowed order of monks, nuns or friars or it could apply more broadly to anyone who lived a chiristian life. The Dominican Matthew Grabow attacked the followers of the "Devotio Moderna," especially women's communities, for living a common life without vows. He also thought that it was not legal for the laity to give up their property rights and pursue a religious life without taking monastic vows. This argument was condemned, even by other friars, for making religious life broadly understood, illicit. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

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 : Jean Gerson and the Debate on the "Romance of the Rose" [Jean Gerson and Christine de Pizan both attacked the Roman de la Rose. Christine rejected the poem's misogyny, while Gerson thought reading it would inspire people to sin. The defenders of the text rejected Christine as a woman and Gerson as ignorant of literature. Both Christine and Gerson made a direct, causal link between reading and human conduct. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Gerson on Lay Devotion [Jean Gerson had a double view of excesses in religion. On the one hand, he took a tolerant view of the well-meaning excesses of lay people, believing they could be led to right practices. On the other, he feared those who arrogated to themselves unique insights despite their lack of training. This stricture applied both to women and to men like Jacques of Bingen. Gerson was capable of changing his mind, as when he withdrew support of Ermine of Reims. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
