Title : Santa Maria Egiziaca tra Oriente e Occidente. La "Vita Sanctae Mariae Aegyptiacae Meretricis" di Paolo Diacono Napoletano [In the ninth century, Paul the Deacon translated a Greek life of Mary the Egyptian into Latin. Mary had an extensive cult in the East, and it had reached the West by the sixth century. Paul came from Naples, a center of Mary's cult and its texts. His translation was free enough to make his own theological points in a style that was unique. The article ends with a series of tables giving Paul's Latin renderings of Greek words and phrases.

Title : L'Onomastica femminile nel ducato di Napoli: L'esempio di Maria [by Carolingian times, Maria was the most common name given Southern Italian women; this antedated by centuries the same development elsewhere in Italy; this is explained in part by the cult of the Virgin, especially in monastic circles; but a great impetus was given to the use of the name Maria by the spread of the cult of Saint Mary of Egypt; two lives of this reformed prostitute were in circulation in Italy in the Carolingian era, one translated from the Greek by Paul, a Neapolitan deacon].

Title : The Poetics of (Non)Conversion: The "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" and "La Celestina" [The author reads Fernando de Rojas' story of Celestina, an aged ex-prostitute, against the conventions of hagiographic romance. The author argues that female prostitute-saints were popular in medieval Spain, and the cult of Saint Mary of Egypt was particularly strong. Although there is no direct connection between the "Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca" (a poem about Saint Mary of Egypt) and "La Celestina," the author argues that Rojas intentionally subverts the literary conventions used in other texts about prosititute-saints. In contrast to what medieval readers might expect, Celestina never undergoes a religious conversion. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Karras, Ruth Mazo.
Title : Holy Harlots: Prostitute Saints in Medieval Legend [The author examines stories and representations in art of five prostiture saints (Mary of Egypt, Thaïs, Pelagia, Mary (the niece of Abraham), and Afra of Augsburg) and Mary Magdalene. Karras argues that although Mary Magdalene does not make money from her indiscriminate sexuality, she is condemned for lust along with the prostitute saints. Since the essence of femininity is sexuality, it is women's greatest weakness and the prime cause for their repentance. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
