Title : Clare's Dream [The author examines the canonization documents of Saint Clare of Assisi. The records depict her as a strong and determined woman who forsook her rich family and embraced a spiritual life, following the example set by Francis of Assisi. They also indicate that after Francis' death, Clare had a dream in which she sucked milk from his breast. After describing various scholars' interpretations of the dream, the author suggests that the dream demonstrates Clare's intimacy with and dependency upon Francis. It presents a more human side to the heroic woman described in later hagiographical texts. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Crockett, Bryan.
Title : Venus Unveiled: Lydgate’s “Temple of Glas” and the Religion of Love [Although Lydgate’s allegorical poem strikes modern readers as long-winded and boring, it is actually an interesting ironic treatment of frustrated love that achieves its effect by reworking literary influences (especially Chaucer’s dream visions). While the poem appears to be a straightforward praise of Venus and erotic love, numerous Classical references and allusions to inconstant women run throughout the work. Thus, Lydgate actually believes that trusting in erotic love (and women in general) leads to disaster. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
