Title : The Real Presence of Mary: Eucharistic Disbelief and the Limits of Orthodoxy in Fourteenth-Century France [The author analyses the case of Aude Fauré which was recorded in Bishop Jacques Fourniers' inquisitorial "Register."

Title : Respondet Waltherus Byrth...: Walter Brut in Debate on Women Priests [John Wycliff's ideas on grace could be used to argue that any good Christian, male or female, was capable of preaching and administering the sacraments. The Welsh Lollard Walter Brut is represented in episcopal records as arguing that women could administer baptism and other sacraments, but he was ambivalent about women celebrating the eucharist. The bishop of Hereford's theologians turned Walter's comments into a discussion of the ordination of women, defending the ability of any priest, even one fallen from grace, to confect the sacrament; but a woman in a state of grace could not. A man's soul was supposed to be different from a woman's and, therefore, able to receive the priestly character in ordination. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Fals flesch: Food and the Embodied Piety of Margery Kempe [In examining Margery Kempe's various interactions with food which include feeding the poor, fasting, receiving the Eucharist, and eating at the tables of prominent people, Raine does not find gender a highly significant factor. Rather Margery acts out of highly individualized motivations including a concern to establish and enhance her own standing. In her conclusion Raine questions Caroline Walker Bynum's approach to women and food in Holy Feast and Holy Fast, finding the methodology and assumptions inadequate for the historical realities of gendered expectations and devotional practices.
