Title : Five Lecciones for the Feast of St. Nonita: A Text and its Context [Curley analyzes a set of liturgical lessons for the Welsh Saint Nonita, mother of Saint David. He argues that the author of the text adapted Rhigyfarch's "Vita Sancti David" (circa 1095) to emphasize the saint's mother's actions. The text cannot be dated but it was in circulation by 1458. The text as it comes down was copied by a fifteenth century antiquarian but is not complete. It is particularly valuable because most Welsh service books have not survived. The article concludes with the Latin text and an English translation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Papi, Anna Benvenuti.
Title : La serva padrona Verdiana da Castelfiorentino is one of the few servants among the revered Tuscan holy women of the later Middle Ages. She, like Saint Zita, was part of a wave of migration from rural areas to the cities in Tuscany. These servant-saints displayed domestic virtues, like generosity; but they also went on pilgrimage. Some experienced local hostility, but Verdiana was supported locally and became known as a wonder worker. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
