Debating the Roman de la rose : a critical anthology by Christine McWebb( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and French and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Around the year 1400, the poet Christine de Pizan initiated a public debate in France over the literary "truth" and merit of the Roman of the Rose, perhaps the most renowned work of the French Middle Ages. She argued against what she considered to be misrepresentations of female virtue and vice in the Rose. Her bold objections aroused the support and opposition of some of the period's most famous intellectuals, notable Jean Gerson, whose sermons on the subject are important literary documents. "The Quarrel of the Rose" is the name given by modern scholars to the collection of these and other documents, including both poetry and letters, that offer a vivid account of this important controversy. As the first dual-language version of the "Quarrel" documents, this volume will be of great interest to medievalists and an ideal addition to the Routledge Medieval Texts series. Along with translations of the actual debate epistles, the volume includes several relevant passages from the Romance of the Rose, as well as a chronology of events and ample biography of source materials
Reinterpreting Christine de Pizan( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Condemned by late nineteenth-century literary historians as a mediocre bluestocking, Christine de Pizan (1365-1431) has emerged in recent years as one of the major figures of late medieval French literature." "Principally known for her revolutionary conception of the equality of women set forth in Le Livre de la Cite des Dames (1405)--the first defense of women by a woman--Christine de Pizan is only now beginning to receive the critical attention she deserves. Born in Venice but reared at the court of French king Charles V, she helped transmit the works of Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio to France--thereby becoming a bridge between the two most important late medieval vernacular cultures. Christine was also in the forefront of the humanistic attack on medieval literature and thought, a stance that made her a pivotal figure in the transition from the late Middle Ages to the Renaissance in France." "Reinterpreting Christine de Pizan assembles seventeen essays from specialists in the United States and Europe that shed new light on three central issues in the work of this major French medieval writer: Christine and the beginnings of feminist thought, Christine's place in medieval French literature, and her relationship to the Church Fathers and to the humanists. These essays, written from a variety of traditional and modern critical perspectives, present a new synthesis on the meaning and significance of the life and work of this remarkable writer."--Jacket
Dante and the "Roman de la Rose" : an investigation into the vernacular narrative context of the "Commedia" by Earl Jeffrey Richards( Book )

20 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relics, identity, and memory in Medieval Europe by Marika Räsänen( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contributes to current discussions of the place of relics in devotional life, politics, and identity-formation, by illustrating both the power which relics were thought to emanate as well as the historical continuity in the significance assigned to that power. Relics had the power to 'touch' believers not only as material objects, but also through different media that made their presence tangible and valuable. Local variants in relic-veneration demonstrate how relics were exploited, often with great skill, in different religious and political contexts. The volume covers both a wide historical and geographical span, from Late Antiquity to the early modern period, and from northern, central, and southern Europe. The book focuses on textual, iconographical, archaeological, and architectural sources. The contributors explore how an efficient manipulation of the liturgy, narrative texts, iconographic traditions, and architectural settings were used to construct the meaningfulness of relics and how linguistic style and precision were critically important in creating a context for veneration. The methodology adopted in the book combines studies of material culture and close reading of textual evidence in order to offer a new multidisciplinary purchase on the study of relic cults."--Publisher's description
Othea's letter to Hector by Christine de Pizan( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Othea’s Letter to Hector, one of Christine de Pizan’s most popular works, is at the same time one of her most complex creations. Combining a somewhat Sibylline verse text based on a mythological figure with extensive citation of pagan sapiential authorities, the Bible, and the Church Fathers, it showcases Christine’s extraordinary learning and her innovative approach to didacticism. An appendix provides new insights on her skillful use of patristic sources and creative command of Latin authors

Heures de contemplacion sur la Passion de Nostre Seigneur Jhesucrist by Christine de Pizan( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in French and French, Middle and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"D'inspiration pleinement religieuse, les Heures de contemplation sur la Passion de Nostre Seigneur Jhesucrist s'adressent en premier lieu à un public féminin. Les textes sur la Passion sont légion au Moyen Âge, mais l'oeuvre de Christine de Pizan, écrite dans les années 1420 et probablement au couvent des Dominicaines à Poissy, donne une tournure toute personnelle aux sources et modèles dont elle disposait. Ses choix sont heureux : en suivant les Évangiles sans pour autant négliger la légende, et surtout en ajoutant des accents féminins, elle a composé des Heures uniques, qui présentent la Passion d'une façon jusque-là inconnue. Ce livre est le résultat d'une coopération internationale. Liliane Dulac (Université de Montpellier 3), René Stuip (Universiteit Utrecht), et E. J. Richards (Bergische Universittit, Wuppertal) ont, par leurs éditions, traductions et articles, depuis des années déjà, contribué à une meilleure compréhension de l'oeuvre de Christine de Pizan"--Page 4 of cover
