Title : Dressing the Hodegetria in Czestochowa [In the late fourteenth century Pauline brothers took custody of a painting of the Virgin and Child at their monastery on Jasna Góra in Poland. The Virgin holds the Child with her left arm and points toward him, a motif known as the Hodegetria or "She Who Points the Way" named for a famous prototype which allegedly belonged to the Hodegon Monastery in Constantinople and dated to the pre-iconoclastic era. In point of fact the motif became popular in the 11th century and was given a legendary origin. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Gender and Politics in the Post-Iconoclastic Period: The "Lives" of Anthony the Younger, the Empress Theodora, and the Patriarch Ignatios [the author argues that the "Life with Encomium of the Blessed and Holy Empress Theodora" and the "Life and Conduct of Saint Anthony the Younger" were written together to counter the iconoclast resentments, embodied in the aggressively masculine writings of Photios, against an iconophile government headed by a woman and surrounded by eunuch advisors; the author of the "Vita" of Saint Anthony uses an Aristotelian form of argumentation for the relative, placing the saint in the middle between lust and impotence, wanton aggression and effeminate cowardice, and other bi-polar extremes of gender stereotypes; the end result was a secularization of the ideas of sanctity and a reliance upon sex roles to characterize the saint].

Title : Women and Iconoclasm [The authors briefly survey women's activities in support of icons, including those individuals who were later honored as saints, women who wrote hymns, and female correspondents of Abbot Theodore of Stoudios. Although iconoclasm was defeated, many of its principles triumphed including anti-feminism. Women's public roles were curtailedand their efforts to defend icons were obscured in the historic record.
