Title : La "Vita sanctae Theodorae" (BHL 8070). La revisione imperfetta di una traduzione perfettibile [The legend of Theodora, who repented her sins in a monastery disguised as a man, originated in Greek. The tale was received in the West via Naples and Rome beginning in the ninth century. A Greek community in Rome at the time of Pope Paschal I is a plausible conduit for the transmission of the "Vita" of Theodora. The Latin texts show many signs of imperfect translations from the Greek. The Appendix presents the Latin text of the "Vita Theodorae," Cap. 241-242. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Teodora e il travestimento mistico nel diciottesimo dei "Miracles de Nostre Dame par personnages" [The legend of Theodora of Alexandria, found in the "Miracles de Notre Dame par personnages," was composed in French and based on the "Legenda Aurea." Theodora adopted men's clothing to escape attempted seduction, and she embraced the life of a monk. Accused of rape, she endured that calumny in silence. Such hagiographic tales did not soften condemnation of cross dressing outside of carnival season. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
