Author(s): King, Margaret L.
Title : Kristeller ad feminam [Paul Kristeller rarely wrote about women in the Renaissance, and he disliked the application of political agendas to scholarship. He was, however, helpful to women scholars; and his "Iter Italicum" made a contribution to the recovery of women authors, patrons and dedicatees of learned works. His work casts light on women's roles in high culture but little on vernacular culture or daily lives of women. Title note supplied by Feminae].

Author(s): Tylus, Jane
Title : Charitable Women: Hans Baron's Civic Renaissance Revisited [Hans Baron's idea of the active life focused exclusively on civic politics, leaving little room for the roles of women. A wider view, encompassing social phenomena, leaves room for their participation in Renaissance Florence. Costanza, a figure in Lorenzo Medici's play for the feast of Saints John and Paul, is treated as a figure of the "mixed" life, combining devotion with a willingness to marry for the good of the Roman empire. Florentine women like Lucrezia Tornabuoni, Lorenzo's mother, led such a life of devotion and service. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Ecce Homo [the author critiques both Caroline Bynum and Leo Steinberg in regard to their interpretations of the erotic in religious thought and imagery; the author argues for a recognition of the homoerotic observing "Christ's body was a fundamentally ambivalent symbol, invested with both hegemonic and counter-hegemonic significance" (page 164)].

Author(s): Kelly, Joan.
Title : Did Women Have a Renaissance? [This is an influential article from the 1970s that still bears up under a close reading. Kelly makes a very convincing argument that Renaissance women lost opportunities and were defined more narrowly than women in earlier generations. She argues that new social relations in the state paralleled a new relation between the sexes, with the public sphere reserved for men only and women dependent on their husbands alone. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
