Title : Martin Le Franc's Rehabilitation of Notorious Women: The Case of Pope Joan [The author argues that Martin Le Franc worked to counter misogynous writings by speaking in defense of women like Pope Joan who had been cast as figures of wickedness. Le Franc's method, using a debate format, was to 1) emphasize her good characteristics, 2) argue that men led her into trouble, and 3) point to men who had the same weakness, but to a much greater degree. The Appendix presents the medieval French text from the "Champion des Dames," Book IV, Octaves 490-507. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
