Title : Il Prete Gianni el le Amazzoni: Donne in un' utopia medievale (secondo la tradizione Italiana) [classical ideas of Amazons as women inverting the proper social order were included in the "Letter of Prester John;" they were described as living on the fringes of his well-ordered realm, in which women were subordinate childbearers; Amazons were described as a threat to chastity because they saw men only for sexual contact and reproduction; the "Letter of Prester John," however, unlike classical texts, depicts the Amazons as tolerated and difficult to defeat].

Author(s): Vitullo, Juliann
Title : Contained Conlict: Wild Men and Warrior Women in the Early Italian Epic [The author explores the figure of the Amazon in several Italian epics including "L'Aspramonte" and "Cantare d'Aspramonte" and the epics concerning Rinaldo da Montalbano. The author argues that the Italian epic writers figured Amazons and wild men as the Other (frequently literally for the women since they were often identified as Saracens) who were ultimately defeated by noble knights. The author argues that this theme was connected to social anxieties since the Italian elites needed to reiterate their superiority over all other social groups because they no longer performed the role of mounted knights. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
