Title : Parisian Nobles, a Scottish Princess, and the Woman's Voice in Late Medieval Song [The author identifies two different women named Jacqueline de Hacqueville in fifteenth century Paris who may have been the woman referred to in Antoine Busnoy's songs. The author suggests that Jacqueline herself wrote two poems in response to Busnoys and may have actively participated in the musical culture of the court. The author more generally examines late medieval poetry written in a woman's voice and suggests that many anonymous poems may well have been the work of women. The appendices present the text and English translations of the Hacqueville songs, "Ja que lui ne si actende," "A vous sans autre me viens rendre," "Je ne puis vivre ainsi tousiours," and "A que ville est abhominable." Appendix Two lists the family members of Jacques de Hacquville according to a legal document from 1482.].

Title : Some Mediaeval Theologians and the Sophia Tradition [The author explores the diverse ways in which four theologians transformed the Biblical figure of Sophia, or Wisdom, into a powerful feminine image of God’s activity in creation and redemption. In the twelfth century, Bernard of Clairvaux frequently alluded to the figure of Wisdom from the Song of Songs in order to represent the maternal and nurturing qualities of the Divine; Hildegard of Bingen’s images of the feminine divine, in contrast, stressed the active forces of creation and redemption. In the fourteenth century, Henry Suso casts himself as a courtly lover who courts Wisdom as a knight serves a lady; Julian of Norwich adapts the maternal imagery of the Divine to embrace a much more inclusive and wider affective range.

Title : Early 15th-Century Polyphonic Settings of Song of Songs Antiphons [The popularity of the Song of Songs in the Middle Ages has ties both to the cult of the Virgin Mary and to courtly love. The bodily imagery of the text could be applied to a spiritual or a carnal beloved. Dialogues between loved and beloved promoted the composition of duet passages in motets on the Song of Songs. When Psalm settings began to predominate in liturgical compositions, the Song of Songs became a source for passages in the more secular chanson-motets. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
