Although there is no direct connection between the "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" (a poem about Saint Mary of Egypt) and "La Celestina," the author argues that Rojas intentionally subverts the literary conventions used in other texts about prosititute-saints. In contrast to what medieval readers might expect, Celestina never undergoes a religious conversion. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Mothers and Daughters in Fifteenth-century Spanish Sentimental Romances: Implications for "Celestina" [Towards the end of the fifteenth century, it became less common for Spanish authors of sentimental romances to present favorable representations of active mother figures. Although it is not a sentimental romance, “Celestina” by Fernando de Rojas was influenced by the genre and can be seen as the culmination of this literary trend. In this text, the active mother figure is a bawd and the biological mother barely appears. These texts perpetuate the misogynist trope that depicts women who act upon sheer emotion or will as the agents of sexual violence; men, on the other hand, base their actions upon reason.

The metaphorical correspondence between the labor or “work” of writing and the labor of childbirth informs the language of many French texts written during this time. The anxieties expressed by modern scholars who attempt to use manuscripts to reconstruct a pure and authorial edition of a text thus reflect medieval writers’ own anxieties about the legitimacy of sexual and textual reproduction.

Title : Be Amorous, But Be Chaste…’: Sexual morality in Byzantine learned and vernacular romance [Aristocratic Byzantine readers enjoyed romances, which often derived tales of love and adventure from Hellenstic or ancient Greek influences and traditions. From the twelfth century onwards, authors of romances in Greek often borrowed themes from ancient pagan texts including the idea of passionate erotic love, yet unlike Classical authors, Byzantine writers strictly presented marriage as the ultimate goal to which all characters strive. Despite threats to their chastity, these romances featured heroes and heroines who remain chaste until the wedding ceremony that ends the story. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
