Medieval women's magazine manuscript

Post by Kristen on Thu Jun 04, 2009 10:50 am

I found this article through a blog I regularly read. The article states that a Canadian researcher discovered a manuscript that may be a medieval women's magazine. If anyone has any additional info about this, I'd love to hear it.

Wow! This is amazing.
I followed the link you provided, and it just makes me wonder if there are any more of these manuscripts around. I want to say that there almost HAS to be. And then my next question is: who wrote them? Was it women writing for women? Or a combo of male and female authors? So many questions.

I wonder if these documents were actually a medieval bound collection. I am not a paleographer... but the text on the left looks more "modern," so to speak.

And, I might ask, why Beves of Hampton in a "book" for women?
