Title : Medieval Soteriologies: Anselm of Canterbury and Julian of Norwich [The author argues that, while Julian gives evidence of some knowledge of Anselm’s ideas, she puts her emphasis on different concepts in her explanations of salvation. In Anselm’s "Cur deus homo" and his prayers, his description of salvation depended upon sin and compunction. Julian’s view of salvation was informed by her mystical vision. Humanity needed to put its trust in God, who was infinitely loving. Julian was distrustful of an undue preoccupation with sin and guilt. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Gendered Sin and Misogyny in John of Bromyard’s "Summa Predicantium" [The author examines misogyny in the “Summa Predicantium,” a popular compendium of exempla (stories offering moral lessons). In these stories, Bromyard’s female characters are more often figures of vice than virtue; however, the exempla are not inherently misogynist in this regard because the male characters are equally sinful. What makes Bromyard a misogynist is the root of these characters’ sins: Women commit sins because of their femininity; men commit them because they are human (not because they are male). Moreover, women are disproportionately depicted as lustful. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
