Title : Cristina di Markyate e la "mistica femminile" [Twelfth-century intellectuals doubted women's spiritual capacities, but the same period saw many women mystics gain recognition for their experience of God.

Her experiences transcended the limits of the intellect through love. Title note supplies by Feminae.]

Author(s): Salih, Sarah.
Title : When is a Bosom Not a Bosom? Problems with "Erotic Mysticism" [The author addresses the issue of eroticism in medieval religion, in female mystics' texts, and in two saints' lives. Salih cogently analyzes current scholarly thinking, including differing interpretations from Caroline Walker Bynum and Nancy Partner. In short passages from the lives of Gilbert of Sempringham and Christina of Markyate, Salih points to instances in which the sexual and the religious were not discrete and separate.

Author(s): Stanton, Robert.
Title : Marriage, Socialization, and Domestic Violence in the "Life of Christina of Markyate" [The author emphasizes the social dimensions of the "Life" and argues that the monk/author was critical of the social acculturation required for the nobility. Stanton also argues that previous authors downplayed the violence her parents and fiancé do to Christina. Another important aspect of the "Life" is the pivotal moment it represents in the transformation of marriage when consent of both partners becomes more important. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : The Conclusion of Christina of Markyate's "Vita" [the author argues that Christina's "Vita" was left unfinished due to the death of Geoffrey, Abbot of St. Alban's, and supporter of and believer in Christina's sanctity]; evidently some of the monks were dismayed at Geoffrey's spending on alms (including twice rebuilding Markyate for Christina) as welll as the rumors about sexual improprieties between the abbot and the holy woman].
