Title : The Stripping of a Queen: Eleanor of Aquitaine in Thirteenth-century Norman Tradition [The author examines vernacular prose histories about the dukes of Normandy and kings of England. Power analyzes one passage concerning Eleanor immediatly following her divorce from Louis VII. She disrobes before her barons and asks for confirmation that she is not a devil. Power links this to the many medieval stories about a female noble ancestor who reveals that she is part demon by turning into a snake in her bath or flying out of church to avoid the Eucharist. The Norman histories vigorously contest this demonic rumor by the barons' affirmation that Eleanor has the most beautiful body in the kingdom. The article appendix presents three excerpts from thirteenth century texts concerning Eleanor's divorce and appeal to her barons. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Vinson, Martha P.
Contributor(s):
Title : Gender and Politics in the Post-Iconoclastic Period: The "Lives" of Anthony the Younger, the Empress Theodora, and the Patriarch Ignatios [the author argues that the "Life with Encomium of the Blessed and Holy Empress Theodora" and the "Life and Conduct of Saint Anthony the Younger" were written together to counter the iconoclast resentments, embodied in the aggressively masculine writings of Photios, against an iconophile government headed by a woman and surrounded by eunuch advisors; the author of the "Vita" of Saint Anthony uses an Aristotelian form of argumentation for the relative, placing the saint in the middle between lust and impotence, wanton aggression and effeminate cowardice, and other bi-polar extremes of gender stereotypes; the end result was a secularization of the ideas of sanctity and a reliance upon sex roles to characterize the saint].

Title : Cybele and Her Cult in Andrea Mantegna's "The Triumph of Caesar" [English adaptation of French abstract: The article explains in detail the presence, never before noted, of the pagan goddess Cybele in the series of paintings by Mantegna, "The Triumph of Caesar." Mantegna draws upon Classical and early medieval art and literature in order to present Cybele in different roles: political, military, and religious. The author analyzes Cybele in relation to her cult, suggesting that, during the time of Julius Caesar, she became a national goddess. She was carried along from Gaul by the army for protection, and was brought into Rome in triumph as a spoil of war. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
