Title : Sy abl fodd, Sibli fain: Sibyl in Medieval Wales [The author analyzes two different instances of the Sibyl figure in Welsh literature. The first examples come from two thirteenth century Welsh translations of the Latin Tiburtine oracles, "Breuddwyd Sibli" and "Proffwydoliaeth Sibli Ddoeth." The second example is drawn from a poem by the female poet Gwerful Mechain who countered Ieuan Dyfi's misogynist complaint by recounting the lives of brave women capped by the Sibyl. Haycock suggests that Gwerful may have taken the example of the Sibyl as a female forerunner to legitimize her public writing. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Sibylla borealis: Notes on the Structure of "Voluspá" [The author explores the figure of the "volva" in "Voluspá," an eddic poem. She is a seer who does magic and is modelled in part on the sibyl of antiquity, although there is some evidence for her earlier historical existence. The author argues that the volva's mixture of pagan and Christian elements is done deliberately to provide different levels of meaning for varied audiences. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
