Title : Donna con Donna?: A 1295 Inquest into Female Sodomy [The author presents a case in Bologna in which a woman was accused of sodomy with other women. Testimony by one witness is also preserved, suggesting that he was not scandalized to hear that a woman was attracted to another woman. The appendix presents Latin texts of the initial notification to the court and the deposition of the witness Ugolino Martini. Lansing suggests that the accuser, Guilelmo, pursued Guericia in court and most probably forced her to flee Bologna. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : To Preserve the Manly Form from So Vile a Crime: Ecclesiastical Anti-Sodomitic Rhetoric and the Gendering of Witchcraft in the "Malleus Maleficarum" [Broedel argues that Heinrich Krämer, the author, with the help of Jacob Sprenger, of the "Malleus maleficarum," adopted the language and critiques of sodomy to describe witchcraft, thus making it a crime of deviant sexuality. Since women were naturally predisposed to witchcraft due to weaknesses in their nature, they were lured into sexual sins with demons. Men who were enchanted by witches lost their potency or became emasculated. Using these kinds of arguments, Krämer created a witch that was much more threatening than in other contemporary tracts.

Title : Chaucer's Pardoner on the Couch: Psyche and Clio in Medieval Literary Studies [the author argues that psycholanalytic theory has been abandoned by psychology and medicine while at the same time medieval literary historians have adopted it with great enthusiasm; the author takes the "Pardoner's Prologue" and "Tale" as a case study and suggests that the castration and homosexuality frequently seen as the key elements in the Pardoner's character were intended by Chaucer to be read metaphorically as indications of the Pardoner's barrenness and false religious beliefs].
