Title : A Fairy Tale from before Fairy Tales: Egbert of Liege’s "De puella a lupellis seruata" and the Medieval Background of "Little Red Riding Hood" [The author analyzes Egbert’s eleventh-century Latin poem as an early analogue to the famous fairy tale about a girl and a wolf. Folklorists differ on the value of medieval texts for their studies, because most see them as too literary to be pure representations of an oral tradition and yet too early to qualify as literary fairy tales. Egbert claims an oral origin to his poem, which appears in a schoolbook for students learning Latin. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Franco-Scandinavian Literary Transmission in the Middle Ages: Two Old Norse Translations of Chretien de Troyes -- "Ivens Saga" and "Erex Saga" [In the thirteenth century, some of Chretien’s Old French romances were translated into Old Norse sagas. The author compares two Norse translations of Chretien’s “Yvain” and “Erec et Enide” and finds that the saga-authors censor Chretien’s sexual references and emphasize the role of the Church over that of Arthur.

Title : Hadewijch of Antwerp and Hadewijch II; Mysticism of Being in the Thirteenth Century in Brabant [The poems of the female mystic Hadewijch of Antwerp, composed between 1220 and 1240, were revised and augmented by another beguine (member of a sisterhood of laywomen) a decade later. This collaboration reflects the contemporary social trend among laywomen in the Low Countries to voluntary take up a simple life of chastity and poverty without joining a religious order. Although the poems composed by the Hadewijchs are written in the language of the trouveres and courtly love, they express a deep spirituality and love for God (not men).

Title : The House of Chaucer & Son: The Business of Lancastrian Canon-Formation [The author argues that Thomas Chaucer, son of the poet Geoffrey Chaucer, maintained the lease on his father’s tenement in Westminster Abbey in order to maintain control over the poet’s manuscripts. Here, exemplars for the authoritative Chaucer manuscripts were assembled for copying by professional scribes. By overseeing the transmission of his father’s texts, Thomas wished to maintain political connections to the Lancastrians (the ruling dynasty) and to establish Chaucer’s place in the canon as the “father” of English poetry.

Title : The Production and Preservation of Letters by Fourteenth-Century Dominican Nuns [Dominican priests often advised members of female religious houses on both practical and spiritual matters, and at times they aided women writers like Margaretha Ebner and Elsbeth Stagel as scribes or editors of their work. Letters by priests to nuns are more likely to be preserved than correspondence written by nuns themselves. The author gives two major reasons for the discrepancy: the letters were pereived to have historical and instructional values for the convent community, and priests held higher rank in the church hierarchy than nuns.

Title : The Yemenite Tradition of Targum Ruth [The author examines the language in eleven Yemenite manuscripts containing Aramaic translations of the Book of Ruth from the Hebrew Bible. Although the modifications and variants in the manuscripts that have been introduced in the text resemble developments that occurred in Western medieval manuscripts and Yemenite manuscripts of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the author establishes that these eleven manuscripts are much more recent productions based upon European printed texts. Nonetheless, these more recent manuscripts do contain improvements upon the text of the Targum Ruth, including the correct use of an idiomatic form of the Aramaic verb “to marry” in place of a literal translation of the Hebrew verb “to take” (introduced in the twelfth or thirteenth century).
