Title : Donna con Donna?: A 1295 Inquest into Female Sodomy [The author presents a case in Bologna in which a woman was accused of sodomy with other women. Testimony by one witness is also preserved, suggesting that he was not scandalized to hear that a woman was attracted to another woman. The appendix presents Latin texts of the initial notification to the court and the deposition of the witness Ugolino Martini. Lansing suggests that the accuser, Guilelmo, pursued Guericia in court and most probably forced her to flee Bologna. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Per una storia della prostituzione a Venezia tra il XIII e il XVIII sec [Beginning in the thirteenth century, the Venetian Republic made efforts to regulate rather than eliminate prostitution entirely. By the fourteenth century authorities were trying to concentrate prostitutes in regulated neighborhoods. Nevertheless, prostitutes continued to operate outside these sanctioned areas, especially in taverns and bath houses. Venetian laws protected prostitutes from abusive pimps but also tried to protect their patrons from diseases. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Lesbian-Like and the Social History of Lesbianisms [The author argues that for the study of the Middle Ages the category "lesbian" needs to be expanded to "lesbian-like" to include characteristics that have affinities with modern-day lesbians; the author suggests that cross dressing women, prostitutes and others involved in unsanctioned sexuality, women in single-sex religious houses, and single women can all be understood in new ways when considered as lesbian-like behaviors].
