Title : Satisfying the Laws: The "Legenda" of Maria of Venice [Susan Mosher Stuard analyzes the "Vita" of Maria Sturion written by her confessor, Thomas Caffarini. Thomas had been given the task of writing a rule for Dominican penitents, lay people who lived a religious life without vows (and also known as tertiaries or third orders). Maria Sturion (or Maria of Venice) had been abandoned by her young husband and led a religious life at the home of her parents; Caffarini developed a close relationship with her as confessor and teacher. He saw Maria's "vita" as a model that other wealthy, young Venetian women could follow. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Author(s): Luongo, F. Thomas.
Title : Saintly Authorship in the Italian Renaissance: The Quattrocento Reception of Catherine of Siena's Letters [The author argues that fifteenth century readers saw Catherine's letters as an important source of moral guidance. Furthermore their being written in the Italian vernacular was not a detraction. Catherine's mysticism conveyed authority as surely as Latin and Greek did for the classics. These trends crystalize in the edition of Catherine's letters printed by Aldus Manutius in 1500. He combines spiritual and literary goals with a new typeface for the saint's inspired vernacular.

Author(s): Lehmijoki-Gardner, Maiju.
Title : Writing Religious Rules as an Interactive Process: Dominican Penitent Women and the Making of Their "Regula" [In the fifteenth century, when the Dominican Order adopted their affiliated groups of penitent women officially, Thomas Caffarini rewrote the history of that association to make it appear more coherent. In fact, the relationship was informal; and these women and their patrons needed to lobby the friars for attention. Thus the original rule granted by Munio of Zamora was informal, given in response to these women. Once the order adopted the penitents more formally, they lost much of their initiative to the friars, whose histories of the movement buried traces of women's activities. Appendicies present the Latin text of Munio's "Ordinationes" written in 1286 for penitent women in Orvieto and a listing that compares the chapter headings in the "Ordinationes" with those in the "Tractatus," the Dominican penitent rule circa 1402-1405.

Author(s): Klaniczay, Gábor
Title : Le stigmate di santa Margherita d'Ungheria: immagini e testi [The earliest sources for Margaret of Hungary, a princess who became a Dominican nun, do not mention her stigmata. Reports of her reciept of the Stigmata were rejected by Tommaso Caffarini, but defenders of the story can be found as late as the sixteenth century. The earliest depictions of Margaret usually lack the stigmata, but a royal crown often is shown at her feet or on her head. Dominican claims to stigmatics threatened Franciscan ideas of their founder as "another Christ" ("alter Christus"), and questions about Margaret became intertwined with disputes over the stigmata of Catherine of Siena.

Title : Riscritture agiografiche: le due "legendae" latine di Margherita da Città di Castello [the legends of saints frequently were reworked; that of the Dominican tertiary Margaret of Citta di Castello went through two Latin versions before being redone in Italian by Tommaso Caffarini; one Latin legend emphasizes parallels between Margaret's life and the life of Christ in the Franciscan tradition of Francis as "Alter Christus;" this made her a more universal figure, and Caffarini built his Italian legend on this vision of Margaret's life; the shorter Latin legend emphasizes Margaret's ties with the Dominican order and her local context].

Title : Lettere di Caterina da Siena. Il testo, la tradizione, l'interpretazione [the letters of Catherine of Siena were gathered in private collections after her death and then in the Caffarini Collection, circa 1400; this was the version that passed into print; Catherine was careful to present herself as humble and unlearned, but her individual voice is heard through the letters even those revised in transmission to be more literary].

Title : La produzione agiografica del domenicano Tommaso d'Antonio da Siena: esempi di santità ed intenti di propaganda [Many late-medieval saints' lives were composed by persons who knew their subjects, and chose to individualize them. Tommaso Caffarini's works personalize Catherine of Siena, presenting a spritual profile, not just recounting miracles. His work on Vanna of Orvieto and Margaret of Citta di Castello, however, is less rich in personal detail. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
