  • Title: I papi del duecento e trecento di fronte alla vita religiosa femminile [The popes of the thirteenth century paid less attention to female than to male religious. Innocent III promoted new forms of women's monasticism, but other popes were less bold. Papal protection was extended to women's monasteries, but this often involved the imposition of stricter enclosure. Nuns of this period frequently showed an intensified desire for union with God].
