Description Virtue Ethics for Women 1250-1500 de Karen Green:

The papers in this volume throw light on women's conscious self-fashioning as moral subjects in the late medieval and early renaissance period. Focusing particularly on the virtues and the way in which women were represented and represented themselves as capable of exercising the virtues, they throw new light on the complexity and diversity of medieval attitudes to female virtue. A number of the essays are devoted to the discussion of the Speculum Dominarum and its French translation Le Miroir des dames a 'mirror' written for Jeanne of Navarre, wife of Philip IV of France by her confessor. This influential work, which has a foot in both the contemplative and active camps and was written c. 1300, serves as an important benchmark against which to measure the originality of later works in which women themselves take up the task of promoting their own conception of the virtues of women and the dignity of the female moral subject. Karen Green is a philosopher and the author of many articles in philosophy and the history of women's ideas, including The Woman of Reason (1995) and with Jacqueline Broad, A History of Women's Political Thought in Europe, 1400-1700 (2009). Constant J. Mews is a medievalist and specialist in the ideas of Abelard and Eloise. He has published many works including Abelard, and The Lost Love Letters of Abelard and Eloise. Together they published Healing the Body Politic: the political thought of Christine de Pizan (2005). Jointly with Janice Pinder their translation of Christine de Pizan's Livre de Paix won the MLA Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for an Outstanding Translation of a Scholarly Study of Literature in 2009.
