  • Title: The Written Woman Writes: Caterina da Siena Between History and Hagiography, Body, and Text [the author argues that Catherine constructs her sanctity based on her body, both in terms of bodily suffering and her mystical assimiliation to the body of Christ, which allows her to take public action and have a public voice; her hagiographer Raymond of Capua prefers to emphasize gender, especially its negative stereotypes, and denies the body].
