Title : The "Speculum dominarum" ("Miroir des dames") and Transformations of the Literature of Instruction for Women in the Early Fourteenth Century [The author analyzes the "Speculum dominarum," a treatise written by Durand de Champagne for Joanne de Navarre, wife of Philip IV and queen of France 1285-1305. The text was later translated into French and remained widely read into the sixteenth century. Mews argues that the text "marks a significant shift in the character of religious writing for women, in moving away from a purely interior focus to one that combines spiritual advice with ethical discussion, of a sort traditionally conducted in a scholastic milieu and addressed only to men." (p. 14).

Title : Gendered Theories of Education in Fifteenth-Century Conduct Books [The author compares texts written for boys and girls and argues that medieval ideas about gender affected both content and teaching methods. Boys learned visually, could handle abstract ideas, and did not need examples of violence to ensure obedience, while girls learned by listening, could only understand the concrete, and had to be threatened with corporal punishment regularly to preserve their sexual purity and by extension the family's honor. The texts the author analyzes are: For girls: "The Good Wife Taught Her Daughter" "The Good Wyfe Wold a Pylgremage" "The Book of the Knight of the Tower" For boys: "The Babees Book" "Lerne or Be Lewde" "The ABC of Aristotle" "Urbanitatis" "The Lytylle Childrenes Lytil Boke" "The Young Children's Book" "Stans puer ad mensam" "How the Wise Man Taught His Son" "The Boke of Curtasye" "Symon's Lesson of Wysedome for All Maner Chyldryn."

Title : Exemplary Women in Renaissance Italy: Ambivalent Models of Behaviour? [the author argues that exemplary women from the classical past and from the ranks of the saints often embodied values that were more advanced than those in Italian Renaissance society; figures like Cornelia, daughter of Scipio Africanus renowned for her eloquence, were reinterpreted to emphasize her domestic and maternal strengths rather than her public skills in oratory; the author concludes, "The consideration of exemplary women actually enlarged the boundaries of the Renaissance notion of woman and generated a reappraisal of a woman's capacity for attaining virtue--but not her status or her role in society." (Page 260)].

Title : Women Humanists: Education for What? [The author looks at the case of Isotta Nogarola, and to a lesser degree those of Cassandra Fedele and Alessandra Scala. Their mentors at first praise them for their learning and declare that they are fellow humanists. However, the mentors soon rebuff further contact or turn the epistolary exchange into a series of love letters. Jardine argues that the purpose of humanism was to prepare men for professions. Women could not be allowed in that public sphere nor could they even be imagined with the kinds of power available to those professions. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Women and Music in Medieval Europe [While women in barbarian cultures sometimes had a stature that equaled that of men and education for women included some musical training, women’s formal participation in the musical arts declined as Roman culture spread. Music as rhetoric was considered part of elementary education and the philosophy of music was an important branch of the liberal arts curriculum, but universities were closed to women in the Middle Ages. Although most women did not have access to formal education in music, many women still participated in minstrelsy (a barbarian art) and the performance of plays. Some noteworthy women composed lyrics and music as well, including the trobairitz (women troubadours) and Hroswitha, a playwright who was also a poet and musician. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
