Title : Inseparable Companions: Mary Magdalene, Abelard, and Heloise [The author analyzes both Abelard’s and Heloise’s ideas about Mary Magdalene. Rather than concentrating on her sinful life, Abelard emphasized her devotion to Christ and her role of apostle to the apostles in first bringing news of the Resurrection. The strong presence of the Magdalene in the Paraclete liturgy and Heloise’s questioning about her in the “Problemata” help to indicate Heloise’s concern to emulate the Magdalene’s loving devotion perhaps not only for Christ but for Abelard as well.

Title : The Poetics of (Non)Conversion: The "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" and "La Celestina" [The author reads Fernando de Rojas' story of Celestina, an aged ex-prostitute, against the conventions of hagiographic romance. The author argues that female prostitute-saints were popular in medieval Spain, and the cult of Saint Mary of Egypt was particularly strong. Although there is no direct connection between the "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" (a poem about Saint Mary of Egypt) and "La Celestina," the author argues that Rojas intentionally subverts the literary conventions used in other texts about prosititute-saints. In contrast to what medieval readers might expect, Celestina never undergoes a religious conversion. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : The Clerical Gaze [The author examines misogyny in clerical literature through the verse and prose writings of three prelates of twelfth century France: Marbod of Rennes, Hildebert of Lavardin, and Geoffrey of Vendome. In the eleventh century, churchmen thought about women in terms of an antithesis between Eve (who represented the sinful and deceptive nature of women) and the Virgin Mary (who represented the unattainable ideal of the virtuous woman). During the twelfth century, the distinctions between Eve and Mary became even starker, and Mary Magdalene (the repentant prostitute) became a figure who took a position between the two extremes. For male clerics as well as female worshippers, Mary Magdalene represented a way for the sinful woman to gain redemption. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Karras argues that although Mary Magdalene does not make money from her indiscriminate sexuality, she is condemned for lust along with the prostitute saints. Since the essence of femininity is sexuality, it is women's greatest weakness and the prime cause for their repentance. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
