Title : Women's Medical Practice and Health Care in Medieval Europe [In this essay review, the author surveys work that had been done up through 1988 on different aspects of women's engagements with medicine, both as patients and as practitioners. She argues that the general assumption that "women's health was women's business" is misleading, both because it overestimates the exclusivity of women's practice on other women and because it overlooks abundant evidence that men, too, were involved in women's healthcare. Accompanying this reprint of the original 1989 version are important corrigenda and addenda. Originally published in Signs 14, 2 (1989): 434-473.

Title : Obstetrical and Gynecological Texts in Middle English [The author complies a list of Middle English manuscripts that contain different texts on childbirth, women’s health, sexuality, and cosmetics. Some of the manuscripts also contain medicinal and culinary recipes. Many of the medical complications are attributed to the female healer Trota (or Trotula) of Salerno, but others are attributed to male authors like Galen and Hippocrates. Although the Trotula texts were popular in late medieval England, the manuscripts indicate that the most widely disseminated medical text was “The Sekeness of Wymmen” by Gilbertus Anglicus. The textual and codicological evidence of these manuscripts suggests that both men and women (and both physicians and laypersons) possessed and read these texts. The author describes each manuscript and lists its contents, and the appendix transcribes a new manuscript (the Middle English "Nature of Wommen") that has never been described. Originally published in Studies in the Age of Chaucer 14 (1992): 53-88. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
