Title : Commentary and the Rhetoric of Exemplarity: Griseldis in Petrarch, Philippe de Mezieres, and the "Estoire" [The story of patient Griselda was retold throughout the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries in different languages; in each treatment of the story, authors see Griselda as an exemplary figure, but they disagree on what exactly she exemplifies. Petrarch portrays Griselda’s submission to her husband figuratively (she represents a Christian’s submission to God). For Philippe, Griselda’s story has both figurative and literal meanings.

Title : What to Call Petrarch’s Griselda [The story about Griselda appears in many medieval manuscripts and early printed editions, but each version is unique, with different introductory and concluding rubrics (headings and titles). These rubrics provide insights into the variety of ways early scribes and readers read the story: it could be read as a myth, history, fable, or exemplum. A bibliography lists 188 manuscripts containing Petrarch’s Latin Griselda story. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
