  • Description:

    "Unlike Christine's God of Love's Letter and Tale of the Rose, Gerson's poem is not a defense of women. It is translated here to show its clear outline of fifteenth-century belief about the relationship between women and men, authoritatively explained by a leader of the Church with whom Christine was thought to have had an "intellectual friendship."
