Maistresse Of My Wit

by Louise D'Arcens, Maistresse Of My Wit Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Maistresse Of My Wit books, This volume explores the reciprocal relationships that can develop between medieval women writers and the modern scholars who study them. Medieval women writers discussed include those writing in the vernacular such as Christine de Pizan and Margaret Paston, those writing in Latin such as Hildegard of Bingen, Heloise, and Birgitta of Sweden, and the works transcribed from women mystics such as Margery Kempe, Hadewijch, and Julian of Norwich. Attention is also given to medieval women as the readers, consumers and patrons of written works. Issues considered in this volume include the place of ethics, interestedness and social justice in contemporary medieval studies, questions of alterity, empathy, essentialism and appropriation in dealing with figures of the medieval past, the permeable boundaries between academic medieval studies and popular medievalism, questions of situatedness and academic voice, and the relationship between feminism and medieval studies. Linked to these issues is the interrelation between medieval women and medieval men in the production and consumption of written works both for and about women and the implications of this for both female and male readers of those works today.

Rooted In The Earth Rooted In The Sky

by Victoria Sweet, Rooted In The Earth Rooted In The Sky Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rooted In The Earth Rooted In The Sky books, Rooted in the Earth, Rooted in the Sky is a detailed study of the medicine of Hildegard of Bingen, a medieval mystic, theologian and composer, who also wrote a practical medical text. Although there has been an explosion of interest in Hildegard's music, theology, illuminations and medicine in the last two decades, this is the first book to use her remarkable text to revise not only our conception of Hildegard but also of premodern medicine itself. It does so by contextualizing her work with primary and secondary historical sources, unedited manuscripts, anthropological and archeological evidence and linguistic analyses. Its surprising conclusion is that the premodern body was more like a plant than a machine or a computer program, and the physician more like a gardener than a mechanic or a computer programmer.

The Voice Of Silence

by Thérèse de Hemptinne, The Voice Of Silence Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Voice Of Silence books, This book aims to collect and present the results of research done within the context of the project 'The voice of silence / La voz del silencio: An interdisciplinary research project about literate women and women authors in the West-European late Middle Ages (11th to 15th centuries) from a gender perspective'. The project was a bilateral research project, with participants of the University of Santiago de Chile on the one hand and Universiteit Gent on the other. Medieval scholars, literary historians, cultural historians and literary theorists joined forces. The angle from which the material was being studied, however, was always the same: gender being the central issue. The project focused on women as participants in late medieval society and culture. Indeed, all the researchers involved acquired their expertise in the field of 'medieval society and culture' and/or the field of women's literacy. Several members of this Flemish-Chilean project have contributed an essay to the proposed book, but supplemented by guest contributions. The guests are internationally renowned scholars reflecting an expertise in gender studies or in an aspect not covered by the team members of the project. Thus, the book contains essays by Anglo-American medieval scholars and researchers specialised in Dutch medieval mysticism. Their contributions complete the research results of the project, especially within the art of criticism. The story told in this book is focused on literate women and gender. In the course of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the voices of women authors, many of them religious and mystics, resounded again in a literate society dominated by clerics. Two of the most famous representatives of this 'female voice' are highlighted in Part I. These women were the forerunners of a new reading culture among (semi-)religious and even lay women in which the use of the vernacular was a decisive factor (Part II). Yet, from the thirteenth century onwards, and with increasing intensity towards the end of the Middle Ages, men once more tried to get a grip on (religious) women's reading and writing. Aspects of these attemps are illustrated in part III.

Moving Toward Emancipatory Language

by Robin Knowles Wallace, Moving Toward Emancipatory Language Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Moving Toward Emancipatory Language books, Each week, millions of English-speaking Christians sing hymns--songs that shape their understanding of and relationship with God. In Moving Toward Emancipatory Language, Robin Knowles Wallace considers the breadth of hymnic language and examines the extent to which that language can reflect contemporary theological concerns. She examines the history of hymns and emancipatory theology, and gives a careful analysis of recent hymns and their emancipatory potential. Wallace provides a balanced account of the intersection of theology, rhetoric, and linguistics in hymn texts, including comments from congregations and worship leaders. An intersection of women's studies, religious studies, and church music history, this work is of interest to teachers and students in those disciplines as well as choir directors, clergy, and congregants.
