Papers presented at the Twelfth International Conference on Patristic Studies held in Oxford 1995 (see also Studia Patristica 30, 31, 32 and 33). The successive sets of Studia Patristica contain papers delivered at the International Conferences on Patristic Studies, which meet for a week once every four years in Oxford; they are held under the aegis of the Theology Faculty of the University. Members of these conferences come from all over the world and most offer papers. These range over the whole field, both East and West, from the second century to a section on the Nachleben of the Fathers. The majority are short papers dealing with some small and manageable point; they raise and sometimes resolve questions about the authenticity of documents, dates of events, and such like, and some unveil new texts. The smaller number of longer papers put such matters into context and indicate wider trends. The whole reflects the state of Patristic scholarship and demonstrates the vigour and popularity of the subject.

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.

Christine de Pizan and Biblical Wisdom

Christine de Pizan and Biblical Wisdom Author Bonnie A. Birk

The fifteen-century writer Christine de Pizan very adeptly used various aspects of the religious traditions of her day in her confrontation of misogynous beliefs and attitudes. In this book the insights of today's feminist scholars in religion are used to demonstrate that one of the more intriguing religious elements Christine drew upon was the female figure of biblical Wisdom. While the use of Wisdom in the Medieval era in a general theological and literary sense was quite prevalent, Christine took a significant step beyond customary symbolic usage in that Wisdom was called upon as a metaphor for deity to creatively fortify her efforts to claim justice and honor for herself and for all women. Wisdom appeared to function, for Christine, as a reflection in the divine realm of ideal female and male realities in the human. This book serves to add a newly discovered source of inspiration for Christine de Pizan's development of her literary-theological creations, and serves as well to add Christine's remarkable feminist appropriation of the female figure of biblical Wisdom to current feminist-theological discussions.
