Title : Palmerius of Picciati: Innocent III meets his "Martin Guerre" [In the early thirteenth century, Pope Innocent III drafted a decretal covering a case of disputed identity. A man claiming to be the missing Palmerius of Picciati sued for return of his wife, who had remarried in his absence, and of his property. Faced with conflicting testimony, the pope ruled that the wife, Gilla, should remain with her second husband. Innocent preferred leaving Gilla with her second husband rather than forcing her to return to "Palmerius," with whom she might have been unhappy, despite existing law favoring a first husband over a second if a man presumed dead reappeared.

Title : La Debolezza del lignaggio. Vedove, Orfani e Corporazioni nella Londra Tardo Medievale [in cities like London, status depended at least as much on wealth as on birth; in this context a widow's dower could transfer substantial capital from the family of her first to that of the second husband; outside London that effect was moderated by giving the late husband's family guardianship of his minor children, but this was not true in England's metropolis, giving the widow more economic power; widows, however, sometimes had to sue to obtain their dower; this ability to remarry, taking the dower with her, undermined patrilinear descent of wealth; but most widows married within the same guild, keeping resources concentrated in the same economic group].
