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. This precluded his believing in her Immaculate Conception. Mary's humility opened the way to her sanctification and for the virgin birth, just as that virtue opens the way for a Christian to become holy. 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 : 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 : Saint Anne and the Religion of Childbed: Some East Anglian Texts and Talismans [The feast of Saint Anne existed in England before it received official recognition in 1382. East Anglian devotion to Anne focused on family ties and childbirth. Osbern Bokenham's poems about Anne were written for Katherine Denston, who desired vainly the birth of a son. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Saint Anne in Folk Tradition: Late Medieval France [A French text relates Saint Anne's birth from the thigh of her father and her upbringing by a deer. This tale has roots in Celtic stories about miraculous births and wild children. Anne was associated with vegetation, including grape vines and wood, and with water, including rain, and with childbirth. 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.].
