Title : . . .l'avrebbe adorata come Dio, se la fede cristiana non l'avesse trattenuto. La "Vita Cristi" di Isabel de Villena [Isabel de Villena, a Franciscan nun, was the first woman to write an entire religious work in Catalan prose. Her "Life of Christ" reports only episodes which involve women witnesses. Isabel presents a vision of harmony not only between the Virgin and Jesus but also between Mary and her mother as well as Mary and the Magdalene. This vision of harmony reverses the evil done by Eve and contradicts misogynist writings by men. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
