Title : Real Men and Imaginary Women: Engelhard of Langheim Considers a Woman in Disguise [The author examines an exemplum written by the Cistercian monk Engelhard of Langheim concerning a monk at Schönau who at death was discovered to be a woman. Engelhard attempted to make her a model for male Cistercians but, unlike later narrators, he ignored the tradition of holy women and the new ideas connecting female weakness to divine strength.
