Title : A Tale of Two Dioceses: Prologues as Letters in the "Vitae" Authored by Jacques de Vitry and Thomas de Cantimpré [The author analyzes the prefaces of five “vitae” (the life of Marie d’Oignies by Jacques and the other four (a supplement to the life of Marie d’Oignies, Christina Mirabilis , Marguerite d’Ypres, and Lutgard ) written by Thomas) looking particularly at the network of relationships the hagiographers had with holy women and with other clerics. Jacques dedicated his “vita” to Bishop Fulk of Toulouse but emphasized the superiority of Liège and its holy women over the arid and heretical diocese of Toulouse. Roukis-Stern observes in Thomas a number of anxieties and a particular need for close friendships. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
