Title : La mariologia di Bernardo di Clairvaux nelle "Homeliae in laudibus verginis matris" [Bernard of Clairvaux focused, in his sermons on the Annunciation, on Mary's becoming holy.

Title : . . .l'avrebbe adorata come Dio, se la fede cristiana non l'avesse trattenuto. La "Vita Cristi" di Isabel de Villena [Isabel de Villena, a Franciscan nun, was the first woman to write an entire religious work in Catalan prose. Her "Life of Christ" reports only episodes which involve women witnesses. Isabel presents a vision of harmony not only between the Virgin and Jesus but also between Mary and her mother as well as Mary and the Magdalene. This vision of harmony reverses the evil done by Eve and contradicts misogynist writings by men. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Introduction [The story of Saint Anne evolved to fill gaps in the biblical narrative of Mary's life. Anne's supposed three marriages, each of which produced a daughter named Mary [Trinubium Annae], made her grandmother of the Holy Kinship, including Jesus and some apostles. This cult, tied to believe in Mary's Immaculate Conception, peaked in the later Middle Ages, declining thereafter even in Catholic countries. Among Anne's roles was protection of married women, including those who wanted to get pregnant. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : In the Defense of Florentine Republicanism: Saint Anne and Florentine Art, 1343-1575 [After Walter of Brienne was expelled from Florence on her feast, Saint Anne became a patron saint of Florence.

When the Medici triumphed, they coopted the saint to watch over their family's rule. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Appropriating the Holy Kinship: Gender and Family History [The descent of Jesus could be traced in the male line from Jesse, father of King David, or in the female line from the family of Saint Anne. Late medieval pictures of the Holy Kinship focus on Anne as grandmother with her daughters, the three Marys, and their young children. These mothers were important, however, only because of their male children. There was a gradual shift away from this Kinship to male-oriented nuclear families, especially when the Trinubium Annae was challenged by reforming scholars. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Image and Ideology: Saint Anne in Late Medieval Drama and Narrative [The cult of Saint Anne offered a means of performing meaning(s). The Huy Nativity Play has Anne and other kin visit Mary and the infant Jesus, gazing adoringly at the baby as he gazes back. In the N-Town Mary Play, Anne is the lynchpin of the Holy Kinship, mediating between marriage and ideas of chastity. The Digby Candelmas Play was enacted on Saint Anne's Day. It shows role reversal, including a soldier being beaten with spindles for his role in the Massacre of the Innocents. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
