Title : Robert de Blois and Geoffroy de la Tour Landry on Feminine Beauty: Two Late Medieval French Conduct Books for Women [The author argues that Robert de Blois and the Chevalier de la Tour Landry conceive of feminine beauty in very different ways.

On the other hand the Chevalier is concerned that his daughters make good marriages and carry on his lineage. He warns his daughters that artificial beauty in the form of fashion and cosmetics only distorts the beauty that comes from God. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

With their emphasis on female responsibility, both houses made provisions for noncloistered nuns to do business with the world. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
