Title : Women Humanists: Education for What? [The author looks at the case of Isotta Nogarola, and to a lesser degree those of Cassandra Fedele and Alessandra Scala. Their mentors at first praise them for their learning and declare that they are fellow humanists. However, the mentors soon rebuff further contact or turn the epistolary exchange into a series of love letters. Jardine argues that the purpose of humanism was to prepare men for professions. Women could not be allowed in that public sphere nor could they even be imagined with the kinds of power available to those professions. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
