The Book of Sainte Foy by Bernardus( )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The miracle stories surrounding Sainte Foy form one of the most complete sets of material relating to a medieval saint's cult and its practices. Pamela Sheingorn's superb translation from the Medieval Latin texts now makes this literature available in English. The Book of Sainte Foy recounts the virgin saint's martyrdom in the third century (Passio), the theft of her relics in the late ninth century by the monks of the monastery at Conques (Translatio), and her diverse miracles (Liber miraculorum); also included is a rendering of the Provençal Chanson de Sainte Foy, translated by Robert L.A. Clark.<br /><br />The miracles distinguish Sainte Foy as an unusual and highly individualistic child saint displaying a fondness for gold and pretty things, as well as a penchant for playing practical jokes on her worshippers. In his record of Sainte Foy, Bernard of Angers, the eleventh-century author of the first parts of the Liber miraculorum, emphasized the saint's "unheard of" miracles, such as replacing missing body parts and bringing dead animals back to life.<br /><br />The introduction to the volume situates Sainte Foy in the history in the history of hagiography and places the saint and her monastery in the social context of the high Middle Ages. Sheingorn also evokes the rugged landscape of south central France, the picturesque village of Conques on the pilgrimage road, and, most important, the golden, jewel-encrusted reliquary statue that medieval believers saw as the embodiment of Sainte Foy's miracle-working power. In no other book will readers enjoy such a comprehensive portrait of Sainte Foy and the culture that nurtured her
Myth, montage, & visuality in late medieval manuscript culture : Christine de Pizan's Epistre Othea by Marilynn Desmond( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and French and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Myth, Montage, and Visuality in Late Medieval Manuscript Culture Marilynn Desmond and Pamela Sheingorn analyze the ways in which Othea manuscripts display classical myths for late medieval humanist, chivalric, and Christian readers. Desmond and Sheingorn's study draws extensively on film theory and it notions of spectatorship to explore the ethical implications of viewing illustrated manuscripts for the medieval reader. Focusing particularly on the twin manuscripts of the Othea in the Duke's manuscript and the Queen's manuscript, the authors suggest that premodern and postmodern cultures share a predilection for the cinematic arrangement of knowledge in a montage format in which meaning derives from unexpected juxtapositions."--Jacket
Interpreting cultural symbols : Saint Anne in late medieval society( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This richly illustrated collection of essays is the first interpretive study of Saint Anne--the apocryphal mother of the Virgin--in late medieval culture. This book examines the myriad images of Saint Anne from a variety of sources including folklore, drama, ritual, the visual arts, local and political history, hagiographic narrative, and theology. As a symbol of immense authority, Saint Anne provides valuable access to this historically specific culture
Same sex love and desire among women in the Middle Ages( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While scholarship in lesbian/gay studies, queer studies, and studies of gender and sexuality has had an enormous impact on medieval studies, little attention has been paid thus far to women who chose to live according to same-sex affectivity and desire. General treatments of homosexuality in the Middle Ages have assumed that little can be said on the subject. The contributors explore the many ways that lesbian love and desire may have been articulated and represented in the medieval period."--Amazon.com
Writing faith : text, sign & history in the miracles of Sainte Foy by Kathleen M Ashley( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writing Faith demonstrates that clusters of miracles form sign systems, and that it is those systems of meaning or representation that can be historically located. Thus, rather than treating individual miracle stories as transparent sources of specific historical data, we can recognize representations common to groups of miracle stories as coherent historical formations. For instance, the negative characterizations of Muslims in the late miracles situate the stories' composition in the eleventh century, a period of rising hostility on the eve of the Crusades."--Jacket
