The book of the city of ladies by Christine( Book )

52 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1405. The story opens with Christine wondering why so many great philosophers, orators, and poets consistently malign women in their works. She wonders how their claims could be true when compared to the natural behavior and character of women. Three celestial ladies appear before her. They explain that they have come to explain the causes of anti-feminism and to reveal womankind's true nature. They will also help her build a fortified city, an ideal city, in which all noble women of the past, present, and future can live undisturbed
The book of the body politic by Christine( Book )

45 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine de Pizan was born in Venice and raised in Paris at the court of Charles V of France. Widowed at the age of twenty-five, she turned to writing as a source of comfort and income, and went on to produce a remarkable series of books, including poetry, politics, chivalry, warfare, religion and philosophy. She is considered to be France's first female professional writer. This was the first translation into modern English of Christine de Pizan's major political work, The Book of the Body Politic. Written during the Hundred Years' War, it discusses the education and behaviour appropriate for princes, nobility and common people, so that all classes can understand their responsibilities towards society as a whole. A product of a time of civil unrest, The Book of the Body Politic offers a medieval political theory of interdependence and social responsibility from the perspective of an educated woman
The book of the duke of true lovers by Christine( Book )

29 editions published between 1907 and 2012 in English and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of deeds of arms and of chivalry by Christine( )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is unexpected in any era to find a woman writing a book on the art of warfare, but in the fifteenth century it was unbelievable. Not surprisingly, therefore, Christine de Pizan's The Book of Deeds of Arms & of Chivalry, written around 1410, has often been regarded with disdain. Many have assumed that Christine was simply copying or pilfering earlier military manuals. But, as Sumner Willard & Charity Cannon Willard show in this faithful English translation, The Book of Deeds of Arms & of Chivalry contains much that is original to Christine. As a military manual it tells us a great deal about the strategy, tactics, & technology of medieval warfare & is one of our most important sources for early gunpowder weapon technology. It also includes a fascinating discussion of Just War. Since the end of the fifteenth century, The Book of Deeds of Arms & of Chivalry has been available primarily through Antoine Verard's imprint of 1488 or William Caxton's 1489 translation, The Book of the Order of Chivalry. Verard even suggested that the work was his own translation of the Roman writer Vegetius, making no mention of Christine's name. Caxton attributed the work to Christine, but it is impossible to identify the manuscript he used for his translation. Moreover, both translations are inaccurate. The Willards correct these inaccuracies in a clear & easy-to-read translation, which they supplement with notes & an introduction that will greatly benefit students, scholars, & enthusiasts alike. Publication of this work should change our perception both of medieval warfare & of Christine de Pizan. Includes information on Frontinus, Hannibal, defense of castles and towns, equipment for assault, sea battles, siege warfare, war machine, Scipio, Vegetius, etc

14 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Texte, hybride, composite, cette oeuvre de Christine de Pisan, composée vers 1400, semble résumer en effet les deux tendances qui ont marqué sa production : d'un côté l'intérêt pour les histoires mythologiques historiques ou pseudo-historiques, de l'autre la volonté, plusieurs fois affirmée, de faire passer une leçon de morale
Christine's vision by Christine( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last of Christine de Pizan’s book-length allegories, The Vision [L’Avision] was written at a time of tumult in both the history of France and Christine’s own professional life. It is both a powerful contemporary response to the chaos that would eventually precipitate Henry V’s invasion of France, and a fascinating view of the author’s own progress as a woman reader, writer, and public commentator in the late Middle Ages. As a long-time intimate of the French court, Christine here analyses the origins of the civil strife in which France found itself in 1405, and offers a possible future, calling for its resolution in the voice of a prophet. Interwoven with this analysis is her own validation as a counselor and public advisor; she traces her ascent from recording scribe to student commentator to authoritative author, demonstrating and applying the arts of interpretation to French history, contemporary politics, authoritative texts, and her own life. Alongside her documentation of the difficulties faced by a medieval woman left widowed early in life, she also explores issues of gender and authorship, interpretation and misinterpretation in her remarkable career as a writer and advisor of princes." -- Publsiher's description
