Title : La Cucina infernale e la mirabile illusione: Il "Dulcitius" di Rosvita fra drammaturgia e innografia [Hrotsvitha used the Christian poetry of Prudentius in the composition of her plays, but she borrowed from the Roman dramatist Terence for comic relief and to lampoon enemies of the faith. In "Dulcitius," the pagan judge is humiliated by devils when he enters a kitchen while seeking to exploit captive Christian girls. Instead he embraces pots and pans, soiling his garment and making a lot of noise. This comedy was intended to reinforce the religious message of the play by humiliating the evil judge.

Title : Sacrificial Spectacle and Interpassive Vision in the Anglo-Norman Life of Saint Faith [This chapter explores what I term, after Žižek, ‘interpassive vision’ in medieval French saints’ lives. The claim that hagiographic narratives are vehicles for male voyeurism achieved some currency in feminist scholarship of the 80s; this chapter deploys the notion of interpassive vision as a means of complicating such claims, reassessing the way these critics characterise gender and sexual desire and suggesting alternative approaches to the relationship between vision and reader response in medieval texts. Summary provided by the author.]

Crachiolo suggests that the audience saw the female body as an object of entertainment though the hagiographer intended the descriptions of torture as a denial of the material world in the favor of Christian spirituality.

Title : Desiring Virgins: Maidens, Martyrs, and Femininity in Late Medieval England [The author explores the attractions of virgin martyr stories for young women in the audience.

At the same time the young virgin martyrs are presented as beautiful, glamorous, and dressed in fashionable clothing; all of this was of prime interest to the young women in the audience.

Title : Monarchy, Martyrdom, and Masculinity: England in the Later Middle Ages [Calling for a gendered reading of monarchy, the author emphasizes both the masculine and feminine characteristics necessary in rulership.

Title : Women and Miracles in Christian Biography, (IVth-Vth centuries) [While miracles are a common feature in saint’s lives, the only saints who actually work miracles are male. Female saints, rather than making miracles happen, have miraculous things happen to them. Christian biographers use miraculous signs and omens exterior to woman herself in order to demonstrate the saintly status of the woman. They do not relate miraculous actions performed by the woman herself. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : From Woe to Weal and Weal to Woe: Notes on the Structure of "The Book of Margery Kempe" [The complicated narrative structure of Margery’s “Book” reflects the author’s attempt to reconcile two contradictory psychological impulses: one is the need to gain social acceptance and legitimacy; the other is the desire to be publicly shunned and perceived as outside of societal norms.

Title : Piety, Politics, and Social Commitment in Capgrave’s "Life of St. Katherine" [Capgrave radically changes old conventions of sacred biographies by creating a new saint’s life. Interested in political, historical, and personal frameworks for martyrdom, Capgrave explores the saint’s limitations as a human and examines how her earth-bound social status affects her public involvement in the secular world. This worldly shift in the representation of the female martyr protagonist reflects the poet’s need to appeal to bourgeois women who were the primary audience for saint’s lives and pious tales. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
