Title : Madame Eglentyne in Her Day and in Ours: Anti-Semitism in "The Prioress’s Tale" and a Modern Parallel [The author assesses twentieth-century scholarship on Chaucer’s Prioress and the controversy over whether the character is anti-Semitic (she tells a story about a little boy killed by Jews). Although one might see the Prioress as anti-Semitic according to our modern post-Holocaust perspective, it is ultimately unknowable whether Chaucer shared her views. The author finds a modern parallel to “The Prioress’s Tale” in the story of a shrine in Rinn, Austria (dedicated to a boy supposedly killed by Jewish merchants in 1462); its cult following endured through the late twentieth-century.

Title : In search of the sacred: Jews, Christians, and rituals of marriage in the later Middle Ages [For many centuries, Jews lived among Christians in most of Europe, and despite religious differences there was much interaction between the two communities in the realm of public social rituals. Even though the two faiths had different philosophies on the purpose of marriage and ethical status of marital sex, Jewish and Christian weddings ran parallel in the gradual sacralization of what was originally a secular ritual and the development of distinct rituals for the remarriage of widows. The upper classes in Jewish and Christian communities approached the marriage ritual as a way to draw sharp distinctions between the two faiths, including the location and timing of the event and what visual elements or objects were used. However, the lower classes often shared more similarities in their ritual behaviors due to a larger degree of contact within a shared culture and common experience. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
