Title : Ely's St. Æthelthryth: The Shrine's Enclosure of the Female Body as Symbol for the Inviolability of Monastic Space [The author argues that the monks at Ely used hagiographies and historical accounts to present the saint and her monastery in as strong a position as possible. The monks identify with the holy female body, emphasizing that as Æthelthryth's body is intact so the lands and properties of the monastery must not be violently seized. After the Norman conquest, William sent Norman monks to Ely. They, however, also wanted to defend the house's privileges, and the writings took on a new image for the saint. She is a warrior woman (a virago or virile woman) who confronts those wrongly holding the monastery's properties. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

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."

Imags of Mary rely on intellectual and theological symbolism rather than on the humanized and affective portrayals that became popular in the thirteenth century. Common motifs include the Virgin as Ecclesia, Wisdom, Bride of Christ, and a crowned queen. Both images and texts were transmitted to the secular world. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Gender, Celibacy, and Proscriptions of Sacred Space: Symbol and Practice [In the early and high Middle Ages women were regularly excluded from men's monasteries and from their churches, which held the relics and tombs of many saints. In some cases, monks made accommodations with separate oratories for women or special exceptions for queens and other highly-placed figures. Nevertheless, there are recorded incidents of women who ignored the monastic rules and entered areas forbidden to all females. Schulenburg suggests that in some cases, at least, women considered the rules only man-made and sought equal access to the tombs and relics of the saints. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Rather than serving to resolve conflict, St. Foy appears as a partisan of the male monastery in Conques, as a threatening figure who punishes those who do not obey her, and as a magnet for popular religious devotion, sometimes beyond the control of the monks.].
