Title : Adulterio, concubinato, bigamia: testimonianze dalla normative statutaria dello Stato pontificio (secoli XIII-XVI) [Beginning in the 13th century, Italian cities, including the papal states, passed laws regulating extra-marital sex. These presupposed that the sexual appetites of women needed to be regulated. They were more tolerant of the offenses of males, and they took into account the reputation of any woman involved in a case about sexual matters. An accusation of rape made by a woman was subject to particularly strict standards of proof. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Woman Displaced: Rape and Romance in Chaucer's "Wife of Bath's Tale" ["Thus, the 'Wife of Bath's Tale' achieves two ends simultaneously. It explores minutely the problem of rape as a crime and the legal confusion over its status, referring to changing views of rape and the legal displacement of women, to the desire of women for action against rape, and to the possibility of the education of men regarding the need for equality in relationships yet at the same time, the tale affirms patriarchal values, inserting the woman within these structures and sustaining a traditional insistence on the action of rape as an element of romance: we hear no more of the victim, the knight is punished, but finally rewarded through otherworldly adventure, and the ideal of the young, beautiful and obedient wife is upheld."

Title : Further Notes on Byzantine Marriage: "Raptus" - harpage or mnesteiai [The author discusses two topics related to marriage, "raptus" and engagements. "Raptus" in the Byzantine canons refers to the act of abducting a woman in order to marry her. The Church canons in regard to engagement changed, so that emperors felt they had to make the rules less strict for young women and men who were often promised in marriage at the age of seven. The Appendix presents four English translations of sources from two churchmen, Xiphilinos and John the Thrakesian, along with legislation from Emperor Alexios I Komnenos.

Title : The Erotic Poetry of the "Cywyddwyr" The author examines sexually explicit poems written by medieval Welsh poets. Some poets borrow heavily from Continental sources (such as Jean de Meun’s "Roman de la Rose" and the French pastorelle genre), but others employ distinctively Welsh literary genres (like the "llatai," a poem that features a male speaker who sends a messenger to seek the female’s favor, or the "cywydd gofyn," a poem that requests a gift). While some of the poems fulfill male desires by presenting women as sexually voracious or by suggesting that mutual enjoyment of sexual intercourse legitimates male acts of rape or violence, other poems explore what happens when the male’s desires are thwarted.

Rather than being too unsuitable or obscure for an appearance on a misericord, this episode of rape and incest was well known and often moralized by medieval commentators.
