Title : A Question of Honor: Eufeme's Transgressions in "Le Roman De Silence" [The author argues that the lustful queen Eufeme does not understand the way honor operates for her husband, King Ebain, and for other male characters in the romance. Her plots to destroy Silence by appealing to her husband's threatened honor are too simplistic. Instead she brings her husband shame and must be executed by being torn apart by horses, the traditional death of traitors. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Divorce, Medieval Welsh Style [The author examines a passage in the "Laws of Women" as it appears in the various Welsh redactions (Iorwerth, Cyfnerth, and Blegywryd) and Latin versions. The passage concerns the division of property between a divorcing man and his wife. The author suggests that the nonsensical divisions indicate a public shaming that would demonstrate the losses soon to be suffered by the man and woman as well as the larger community. The author also suggests that there may be political undertones referring specifically to the troubled marriage of the ruler Llywelyn ap Iorwerth and Joan, illegitimate daughter of John of England.

Title : Gender and Shame in Masaccio's "Expulsion from the Garden of Eden" ["Here both gestures - Eve in covering her erogenous zones, Adam in leaving his exposed and in covering only his face - suggest that, in conformity with Italian mores, it is only the woman's sexuality that is at issue and that the sin associated with her sexuality dishonours the man. Adam's exposure does not dishonour him; rather it serves to draw the insistent distinction between men and women, fundamental to the honour-shame paradigm, which is manifested most recognizably in anatomy." (Page 650)].

Title : Pollution, Penance, and Sanctity: Ekkehard's "Life" of Iso of St. Gall [Ekkehard is mainly concerned with the circumstances of Iso's conception; his parents accidentally had sex on a forbidden holy day, but through their extraordinary and deeply sincere public penance, were not only able to avoid the punishment of a deformed or otherwise marked child but were blessed by a holy child; the article includes an English translation of the relevant portion of Ekkehard's "Life" of Iso].

Title : In the Context of "Rough Music": The Representation of Unequal Couples in Some Medieval Plays [The author discusses the custom of "charivari" in which the community shamed and mocked inappropriate couples (including age disparity, adultery, and such violations of gender norms as shrewish wives and henpecked husbands).
