Dominici shared the misogyny of his age, but he showed an intimate awareness of women's situations and concerns. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : Marriage Sermons, Polemical Sermons, and “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue”: A Generic Excursus [Instead of reading “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue” against an antifeminist literary tradition, the author reads the work against medieval sermons on marriage. In the fourteenth century, these sermons were both for and against women, and in this poem the Wife of Bath assumes the authoritative stance of a preacher on marriage. The author sees parallels between the “Prologue” and the marriage sermons of Jacob of Voragine. Moreover, the poem’s focus on women’s speech and power refers to fourteenth century struggles over who had the authority to preach. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : St. Catherine of Siena, "Apostola" [The author argues that Catherine has most often been viewed either as the activist supporter of the papacy or the miraculous mystic celebrated in the canonization process. Scott argues that the autobiographical material in her letters paints a different picture. She saw herself as an apostle, a wandering preacher and peacemaker who integrated both the political and the visionary in a life of sacrifice and service. Scott suggests that she may have led such an active and unconvential life in part because she was not concerned about gender distinctions. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
