Via femina: Female patronage of vernacular religious texts in 13th c. Picardy (Book Section)
Title: Via femina: Female patronage of vernacular religious texts in 13th c. Picardy
Author: Kathy M Krause
Editor: Anne-Marie Legaré
Editor: Cynthia J. Brown
Abstract: This article examines two thirteenth-century vernacular religious texts dedicated to two neighboring Ponthevin ruling countesses: the paraphrase of the Pater Noster dedicated to Ide de Boulogne and the allegory of the redemption known as the Quatre Sereurs written for the countess of Ponthieu. The two texts share not only the fact of female patronage, and geography, they also share family connection (two brothers married the two counties’ heiresses) and a manuscript context, for they both occur in the related compilations BNF fr. 12467 and Arsenal 3142 (as well as in other manuscripts). In addition, both manuscripts, and in particular Arsenal 3142, have close associations with another female literary patron, Marie de Brabant. This article examines these two texts in their historical and manuscript contexts, looking at the evidence for and results of female patronage in both texts and manuscripts.
