Title : The Stripping of a Queen: Eleanor of Aquitaine in Thirteenth-century Norman Tradition [The author examines vernacular prose histories about the dukes of Normandy and kings of England. Power analyzes one passage concerning Eleanor immediatly following her divorce from Louis VII. She disrobes before her barons and asks for confirmation that she is not a devil. Power links this to the many medieval stories about a female noble ancestor who reveals that she is part demon by turning into a snake in her bath or flying out of church to avoid the Eucharist. The Norman histories vigorously contest this demonic rumor by the barons' affirmation that Eleanor has the most beautiful body in the kingdom. The article appendix presents three excerpts from thirteenth century texts concerning Eleanor's divorce and appeal to her barons. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Separating the Men from the Boys: Masculinites in Early Quattrocento Florence and Donatello's "Saint George" [Nineteenth and twentieth century scholars projected an idealized masculinity onto Renaissance Florence. Seen from this viewpoint, Donatello's "Saint George" is an idealized young man just entering maturity. The supposed display of manly self control fits in with ideals of masculinity described by humanists like Leonardo Bruni. This, however, involves rejecting alternative evidence showing how homoerotic desire and nostalgia for lost youth were projected onto the same image by some Florentines.

Title : Giovanna Cenami's Veil: A Neglected Detail [The author analyzes the woman's veil in Van Eyck's "Wedding of Arnolfini." Evidence in other artworks suggests that this ruffled veil had its heyday in the mid-to-late fourteenth century. In 1434 Van Eyck may have used the old fashioned veil to signal a ceremonial occasion in which the betrothed young woman by her headress and clothing conveyed dignity and a prosperous social status. Tilghman wove some linen samples to determine the best methods for making ruffled edges. The veil would have had to be a single length without seams approximately six yards long. It would probably have been a specialty item and would have been costly. Tilghman speculates that it might have been a family treasure passed down to Giovanna Cenami.

An assistant painted the panel portrait perhaps around 1450 without the skill or sensitivity of van der Weyden. The painting evidently passed to Isabel's great-granddaughter, Margaret of Austria, where it was given more magnificent clothing and jewels around 1530. An inscription was added perhaps around 1600 identifying the woman as a sibyl. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : The Great Divide?: History and Literary History as Partners in Medieval Mythology [The author takes four literary works by Geoffrey of Monmouth, Matthew Paris, Boccaccio, and Christine de Pizan as case studies. She argues that they all demonstrate a sophisticated mix of historical, legendary, and Biblical figures. Furthermore in their representations of women they each perform significant cultural work. Geoffrey of Monmouth sought to legitimize Empress Matilda's rule of England. Matthew Paris reinforced desirable female behavior by critcizing dangerous female traits. Boccaccio offered models for women to emulate. Christine de Pizan took this further by acknowledging misogyny in her sources and championing woman's moral nature. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Although the image of an adulterous couple may not seem appropriate for shoes associated with marriage, other iconography on the slippers (such as an orchard, falcon, chessboard, and literary inscriptions) and contemporary Dutch literature about the Tristan story indicate that the urban public was reappropriating elements of courtly culture.

Jephthah's daughter's death is figured as a type of the eucharist, a brave hero willing to give her life for her people, a virgin dedicated to God (sometimes walled into an anchorhold rather than killed) and, negatively, as synagogue concerned with worldly attractions.

The significant questions of identity and differences within this group are analyzed. Some aspcts of these scenes changed very subtly; I evaluate these differences in relation to their historical context and consider how they reflected the development of liturgical and devotional practices. The main focus of this paper, however, is an evaluation of the theory that pictorial images of St. Elizabeth may be in imitation of those representing Christ." Page 168.].

Some paintings celebrate his sexual restraint with Scipio returning the captured princess to her betrothed. However, other paintings present him as a conqueror with booty, an exemplar of masculine financial and political success for the bridegroom viewer. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

In the fifteenth century Bishop Alonso de Cartagena translated her relics to an altar and remodelled the now-empty tomb to take up less space.

The choice of Taddeo to paint this image reflects a deliberate choice of Orte's leaders to acknowledge both Roman and Umbrian influences on their city].

Title : Gender and Shame in Masaccio's "Expulsion from the Garden of Eden" ["Here both gestures - Eve in covering her erogenous zones, Adam in leaving his exposed and in covering only his face - suggest that, in conformity with Italian mores, it is only the woman's sexuality that is at issue and that the sin associated with her sexuality dishonours the man. Adam's exposure does not dishonour him; rather it serves to draw the insistent distinction between men and women, fundamental to the honour-shame paradigm, which is manifested most recognizably in anatomy."

Imags of Mary rely on intellectual and theological symbolism rather than on the humanized and affective portrayals that became popular in the thirteenth century. Common motifs include the Virgin as Ecclesia, Wisdom, Bride of Christ, and a crowned queen. Both images and texts were transmitted to the secular world. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
