Contributor(s):
Title : The Labour of Continence: Masculinity and Clerical Virginity [The author looks at three narratives concerned in part with clerical chastity: "Jewel of the Church" by Gerald of Wales, Jacob of Voragine's "Golden Legend," and Caesarius of Heisterbach's "Dialogue on Miracles." Arnold identifies four different tropes in overcoming sexual temptations including divine intervention to remove the male saint's desire. In most cases though male chastity required vigilance and willpower because masculinity itself was flawed in its inclination toward temptation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Cullum, P. H.
Contributor(s):
Title : Gendering Charity in Medieval Hagiography [the author argues that not only did ideas about gendered behavior affect views of sanctity but conceptions of sanctity also had an impact on gender roles; men were expected to be charitable but responsible while women were often characterized as irresponsible, excessive, and other negative feminine stereotypes; in transgressing gender lines some charitable holy women and men were still canonized (e.g., Saint Francis and Elizabeth of Hungary) while others were rejected as role models (e.g., Charles of Blois and Peter Valdes)].

Title : Teodora e il travestimento mistico nel diciottesimo dei "Miracles de Nostre Dame par personnages" [The legend of Theodora of Alexandria, found in the "Miracles de Notre Dame par personnages," was composed in French and based on the "Legenda Aurea." Theodora adopted men's clothing to escape attempted seduction, and she embraced the life of a monk. Accused of rape, she endured that calumny in silence. Such hagiographic tales did not soften condemnation of cross dressing outside of carnival season. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
