Title : Le vedove cristiane tra i Padri e le norme [In fifth and sixth century Gaul, widows were set apart by some clergy with a ceremony similar to the veiling of virgins. Widows might be indigent or members of the highest social groups with ascetic impulses. The Fathers of the Church created a theology of widowhood, much of it addressed to widows they knew. A growing body of ecclesiastical regulations gradually marginalized an actual order of widows. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Il monachesimo femminile in Italia tra Tardo Anticho e Medioevo [Early Italian monasticism, modeled on Egyptian practices, had a predominant number of female ascetics. Many lived with their families, and communities only took shape gradually. Virgins ranked first; then widows; then married women vowed to continence. The numbers of ascetic women, compared to the number of monks, had declined by the time of Gregory the Great].

Title : L'idea della donna nella cultura della prima metà del Quattrocento toscano [for the Middle Ages we have vastly more material written by men than by women, and the evidence is skewed in favor of the upper classes; much of early and high medieval writing on women was influenced by the misogyny of Jerome and favored celibacy; late medieval theologians came to speak more highly of marriage and the family, but they still favored discipline as the ideal for women; the humanists placed even greater emphasis on marriage; Italian merchants placed a great emphasis on procreation, but their memoirs can speak of wives in loving terms].

Title : Perche Eustochio [The name of Saint Jerome’s female disciple Eustochium was adapted from the Greek. In Italian it was rendered as Eustochio or Eustochia. The Franciscan Observants were interested in Jerome, and so his disciple’s name was used to tie a saintly nun from Messina to this cult. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
