Title : Reading the Garden in Byzantium: Nature and Sexuality [The author examines a series of texts, particularly Greek romances, in which gardens and women figure. Barber suggests that the male construction of the Byzantine woman is linked to an understanding of the garden. He argues that the dynamic can be read in radically different ways. The male gardener may be seen as being in complete control and dictating what is beautiful to his eye. On the other hand, the garden can be seen as an inbetween spot where male discourse falters and the woman may escape his control. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Be Amorous, But Be Chaste…’: Sexual morality in Byzantine learned and vernacular romance [Aristocratic Byzantine readers enjoyed romances, which often derived tales of love and adventure from Hellenstic or ancient Greek influences and traditions. From the twelfth century onwards, authors of romances in Greek often borrowed themes from ancient pagan texts including the idea of passionate erotic love, yet unlike Classical authors, Byzantine writers strictly presented marriage as the ultimate goal to which all characters strive. Despite threats to their chastity, these romances featured heroes and heroines who remain chaste until the wedding ceremony that ends the story. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
