Article
From disciple to mentor, this is the path followed by Christine de Pizan. She begins to stage herself under the guidance of allegorical personifications such as the Cumaean Sibyl in Chemin de long estude (The Long Road of Learning), and Reason, Rectitude and Justice in the Livre de la Cité des Dames (The Book of the City of Ladies) et le Livre des...
Article
This article looks at the color black and the way it takes part in the shaping of the work. It considers the variations of meaning the color takes on according to the configurations in which it is embodied, especially when paired with white. Generally considered negative, it can convert to a positive sign, while white takes on a negative value. The...

Article
The article looks at the network of self-quotations and self-references Christine de Pizan builds between her texts. The first result is to engage the readers in a rereading of her works in line with the dialogue that she establishes between them. They are especially invited, through the web of reiterations from one text to another, to recognize ho...
Article
In the Vengeance Raguidel, Raoul de Houdenc relies on his knowledge of the topoi of the narrative repertoire and on his public’s knowledge of it to put them to test through the principle of insertion. The vengeance motif works as a framed tale for the stories told by the protagonists, stories which are, however, an integral part of the diegesis, ev...
Book
This article shows that the apparent mixing of genres in the Belle Hélène de Constantinople rests in fact on the combination of clearly identifiable generic matrixes (saint's lives, chanson de geste, and the romance) which rub shoulders with each other without losing their identity. If hagiography remains the dominant interpretative guide, these th...
Book
This essay focuses on the way poets, from troubadours to rhetoricians, seek to identify themselves with the heart of their œuvre through a name, making the name - their own, but also that of their partners and rivals in poetry, and their protectors - a principle of their poetics.
Article
The visionary experiences of two fourteenth-century illiterate women, Constance de Rabastens and Marie Robine, demonstrate that they possessed an undeniable amount of theological and political knowledge. Their example, along with that of other medieval female mystics, raises the more general question of the ways in which the laity, particularly wom...
Article
The article focusses on how Jean Lemaire de Belges reflected on poetic as well as authorship issues during a period that required to take a stand against the medieval heritage - that is, all acquired knowledge from the Antiquity to the Middle ages. In the Épîtres de l’Amant vert, the subordinate relationship between the poet and his patron results...

Article
La complexite et la fluidite des relations transtextuelles au Moyen Âge dejouent, dans une large mesure, les tentatives de definitions qu’on a tente d’elaborer a partir de textes de la litterature moderne et contemporaine. Dans une periode qui a precede la mise en place de l’institution litteraire et l’emergence d’une figure d’auteur progressivemen...
Article
Transtextual renderings of literary works in the Middle Ages were so complex and fluid that today's definitions intended for modern and contemporary texts essentially don't apply. The notion of pastiche is problematic for this period which preceded an organized literary institution and the emergence of an author figure progressively identified as c...

The fact the Livre des Échecs amoureux cannot be reduced to a specific genre, can be explained by Evrart de Conty’s intention to compose a poetic work. His text can be considered as a microcosm that encompasses encyclopedic knowledge, philosophic, mythographic, and literary traditions. The analogy with the macrocosm is based on the musical harmony...

Article
This paper explores an area which has proven difficult for scholars to penetrate: women's popular wisdom concerning medical matters in the later medieval period. Contextualized within an examination of medieval medical texts both by and about women, our discussion focuses on a later 15th-century French work, The Distaff Gospels. This text, publishe...
Article
Medieval studies are an established part of the curriculum in the Departments of English, French and History at McMaster University. The Middle Ages also figure in courses offered by the Department of Religious Studies. Unfortunately, however, the medieval period is not specifically addressed in the Departments of Philosophy, Music and Art History...

Je voudrais, en bonne rhetorique, commencer par un prologue. Bien entendu, l'analogie entre mes modestes propos d'introduction et l'art des Anciens s'arretera la, ceci n'etant pas de ma part une fa9on de "captatio benevolentiae." II me faut tout d'abord presenter les EQ, oeuvre pretexte a la reflexion qui va suivre. Sur le plan de 1'organisation te...
