Title : Secondary Offenders? English Women and Crime, c. 1220-1348 [The author analyzes records from the south and southwest of England. Women committed fewer crimes than men. They were less aggressive, Sims argues, not because there was a public repugnance for violent women, but because the crimes they preferred, such as larceny and burglary, were best committed quickly and quietly. The author also briefly addresses infanticide and insanity. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Miracoli con il signum: due casi a confronto, Rosa da Viterbo e Simonino da Trento [Devotion to Rose of Viterbo was recorded immediatly after her death in 1251. Her cult benefited from pilgrim traffic through Viterbo to Rome, as well as local devotion. Notaries recorded miracles that supported the cause for Rose's canonization. Similarly, when the body of Simon of Trent, a boy thought murdered by Jews, was found in 1475, notarized documents were prepared to support a less successful campaign for canonization.

Title : The "Homicidal Women" Stories in the "Roman de Thèbes," the "Brut Chronicles," and Deschamps's "Ballade 285" [The author summarizes her thesis in this way: "These three phenomena concerning the homicidal-women stories--their participation in the narrow yet strong narrative tradition of women-on-top, their framing in the inaccessible sphere of myth, and their use as a currency of literary prestige--were all coherent with the dominant male ideology and, perhaps more unexpectedly, useful in shaping national politics."

Title : Albine and Isabelle: Regicidal Queens and the Historical Imagination of the Anglo-Norman Prose "Brut" Chronicles [The author argues that the prose continuators of the "Brut," particularly the author of the "Long Continuation," draw connections between Albine, the rebellious daughter of a noble king who kills her royal husband and is exiled to a distant isle that she names Albion, and Queen Isabella of France, who plotted with Roger Mortimer to kill her husband, King Edward II, and usurp his power. The Appendix presents an edition of the prose prologue to the "Long Version" of the Anglo-Norman prose "Brut" with a facing page English translation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Canon Law versus Common Law: The Case of Abortion in Late Medieval England [Medieval Canon law treated abortion as the killing of a person, equating it with homicide. On the Continent, lay courts and the Roman lawyers accepted this doctrine. English Common Law courts did the same until the later thirteenth century. Then abortion became treated as an ordinary suit for damages, not even fining a suspect when a trial was inconclusive. In this case, as in many others, the Common Law, driven by local juries defending their neighbors, parted company with the learned law. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Dolce of Worms: Women Saints in Judaism [Dolce, along with her two daughters, was murdered during an antisemitic attack; her husband, Rabbi Eleazar, wrote both a prose (reproduced in the text with English translation) and verse memorial in which he praised her piety, her knowledge of Hebrew, her abilities at managing the household, her bravery in seeking help during the attack on their family, and her shrewd business skills that supported the family and allowed her husband to study the Torah; Dolce's saintliness consisted largely in her willingness to obey her husband and support him in his study of the divine word].
