Though Mary is shown with her hands raised in prayer, her association with other male figures on the chalice suggests an affirmation of male priestly prerogatives. Hildegard and Elisabeth emphasize their visions and virginity, not to argue for the ordination of women, but to indicate the roles they and other religious women played in the church.

Rather than the mild mother figure, Mary is here portrayed as the queen of Hell who aggressively and angrily confronts first Theophilus and then the devil.

Title : Marian Lyric in the Cistercian Monastery During the High Middle Ages ["This paper will place lyric poetry dedicated to the Virgin within the Cistercian context. I shall attempt to show that Marian verse, the sequence in particular, was well suited to the devotional needs of the monks of the twelfth- and early thirteenth-century Cistercian houses. Furthermore, I will demonstrate that it conformed well to a monastic environment which focused on the religious value of interactions of the monks with written texts. Finally, I shall illustrate how poetry provided an expanded vocabulary for the expression of the ever growing devotion in the order to Our Lady. The paper will conclude with an analysis of a collection of verse from the early thirteenth century composed by an anonymouse monk of Saint Mary of Noah (La Noë), a Cistercian house in northern France."

The authors of the miracle tales may also have been uneasy about the withdrawal of the liturgy from the laity and the increasing emphasis on a very strict orthodoxy. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Chaucer's Missing Children ["In the lyrics, the drama, and in Chaucer's religious tales, then, the sufferings of mothers and children are made analogous to those of Mary and Christ. Children are appropriate, even essential, to this genre because, in their relationships to their mothers, they embody one of the central mysteries of the faith. Conversely, the relationships between fathers and suffering children, while presented as significant in the tales of tragedy and morality, hint at but cannot carry the same spiritual valence. Further, to recapitulate my introductory remarks, children are largely absent from the romances and fabliaux because they would be a hindrance to the internal necessities of those forms. Children are depicted in 'The Canterbury Tales' not according to any principles of realism, but according to their appropriateness to particular literary genres." p. 5 of the electronic version available through Project Muse].

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.].

Much of thirteenth century Marian art from England has been lost; but illuminated manuscripts employ the most common motifs, including Mary pleading bare-breasted for sinful humanity.

The earliest example of the topos in Welsh poetry probably dates from around 1400. In all these instances, poets borrow and adapt ideas about the Virgin Mary from Continental sources like sermons, Church teachings, or poetry. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
