Title : The Veiled Poet: "Líadain and Cuirithir" and the Role of the Woman-Poet [The author briefly analyzes the figure of the female poet Liadain and compares her to two other literary representations of women poets: the daughter of Ua Dulsaine and the protagonist of "Aithbe Damsa." Larson suggests that all three stories about these professional women poets show them as hidden (sometimes using the image of "caille," a veil) and speaking from the outside. Moreover, they all have to pay a price to make their voices heard. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Hail Brigit!: Gender, Authority, and Worship in Early Ireland [The author sets her study of Brigit within seventh century struggles for political and religious dominance in Ireland. Brigit's hagiographers sought to bolster her authority in order to strengthen the claims of the abbess of Kildare and her communitity to not only the churches in Leinster and the midlands but to all the religious women in Ireland. Bitel argues that paradoxically the basis of Brigit's authority comes from her gender; her hagiographies identify her powers as uniquely female. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

In concluding the author suggests that medieval audiences might have had different reactions and that the sculptures lend themselves to multiple readings. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
