Title : Le Lettere di indulgenza per la Scuola delle Quattro Marie di Milano [the Scuola delle Quattro Marie, a Milanese confraternity, is little documented before the 14th century; at that period an altar of the Four Marys can be identified in the old cathedral which honored the Virgin, her supposed sisters, and the Magdalene; but no chapel of that name existed there or in the new cathedral in the Middle Ages; the surviving indulgences document the transformation of a group of "raccomandati della Vergine Maria" into a formal "scuola" or meeting at the cathedral; this development coincided with the stabilization of the Visconti regime; the article concludes with critical editions of the four indulgence letters].

Title : La festa tra spettacolo e invenzione: il corte nuziale di Isabella d'Aragona e Gian Galeazzo Sforza [Magnificence was expected of Italian courts in the 15th century. This extended to wedding with their diplomatic overtones. In 1489 King Alfonso of Naples married his daughter Isabella to the young duke of Milan, Gin Galeazzo Sforza. Ceremonies in both Naples and Milan were marked by conspicuous display. Scholars and artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, were enlisted to ornament these nuptials.]

Title : Monasteri benedettini femminili a Milano prima della riforma [Reform of women's monasteries in Milan, especially when the nuns resisted, required support from ecclesiastical and lay authorities. These authorities occasionally failed to act in concert. Strict enclosure, one of the hardest reforms to impose, served to ameliorate one problem, nuns acting out the hostilities among their kindred. Even nuns desirous of living strict lives had difficulties finding acceptable confessors and visitors to meet their spiritual needs].

Title : Da bizzocche a monache [Many penitent women, individual or in community, can be traced in northern Italy during the later Middle Ages. Some communities of these bizzoche were authorized by the local bishop rather than by the papacy. Most of these houses were pressured into adopting an existing monastic rule, claustration, and distinctive garb].

Title : Il monachesimo femminile benedettino nell' Italia nord-occidentale (secc. Xi-xiii) [To the end of the thirteenth century, most aspects of monasticism, male or female, remained substantially similar. The women's monasteries of northwest Italy, many of them inside cities, tended to be controlled by powerful families, noble or patrician, who tended to provide both the abbesses and the lay managers of their patrimony. These monasteries took part in urban expansion and the exploitation of rural districts. Strict monastic enclosure, imposed late in the Middle Ages, reduced the importance of these ties with urban life and politics].

Title : Dicte Priora et Sorores Non Sint Moniales Nec Earum Domus Monasterium Appellatur. La Domus Milanese delle umiliate di Cambiago tra XII e XIV Secolo [the house of Cambiago took shape in the 13th century as a community of women following the Augustinian Rule and affiliated with the Humiliati; in the 14th century it split into two monasteries that were not reunited until the 16th century; this reflected political divisions within the commune of Milan; the women of Cambiago had some spiritual ties with the Milanese Dominicans even before the split; much of the economy of these houses was dependent on the wool trade, proceeds of the nuns' work going into the purchase of real estate].
