Title : The Stripping of a Queen: Eleanor of Aquitaine in Thirteenth-century Norman Tradition [The author examines vernacular prose histories about the dukes of Normandy and kings of England. Power analyzes one passage concerning Eleanor immediatly following her divorce from Louis VII. She disrobes before her barons and asks for confirmation that she is not a devil. Power links this to the many medieval stories about a female noble ancestor who reveals that she is part demon by turning into a snake in her bath or flying out of church to avoid the Eucharist. The Norman histories vigorously contest this demonic rumor by the barons' affirmation that Eleanor has the most beautiful body in the kingdom. The article appendix presents three excerpts from thirteenth century texts concerning Eleanor's divorce and appeal to her barons. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Separating the Men from the Boys: Masculinites in Early Quattrocento Florence and Donatello's "Saint George" [Nineteenth and twentieth century scholars projected an idealized masculinity onto Renaissance Florence. Seen from this viewpoint, Donatello's "Saint George" is an idealized young man just entering maturity. The supposed display of manly self control fits in with ideals of masculinity described by humanists like Leonardo Bruni. This, however, involves rejecting alternative evidence showing how homoerotic desire and nostalgia for lost youth were projected onto the same image by some Florentines.

Nichols reviews the contributions of five recent authors: Jody Enders, Suzannah Biernoff, Jeffrey Hamburger, R. Howard Bloch, and Daniel Heller-Roazen.

Musson cites cases in royal, ecclesiastical and civic courts in which rape apparently was not actually involved. For example, a jury gave a very brief sentence perhaps in order to control behavior like extramarital sex. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : The Great Divide?: History and Literary History as Partners in Medieval Mythology [The author takes four literary works by Geoffrey of Monmouth, Matthew Paris, Boccaccio, and Christine de Pizan as case studies. She argues that they all demonstrate a sophisticated mix of historical, legendary, and Biblical figures. Furthermore in their representations of women they each perform significant cultural work. Geoffrey of Monmouth sought to legitimize Empress Matilda's rule of England. Matthew Paris reinforced desirable female behavior by critcizing dangerous female traits. Boccaccio offered models for women to emulate. Christine de Pizan took this further by acknowledging misogyny in her sources and championing woman's moral nature. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

As she narrates these images, Christine establishes her unique authority as a female poet of history, differentiating herself from the male wall-reading protagonists of the Aeneid, Roman de le Rose, the Prose Lancelot, and Dante’s Divine Comedy.
