slide15

slide17

slide18

Enthroned Virgin and Child

ca. 1260–1280; French; Paris

slide19

Madonna and Child, ca. 1300; Duccio di Buoninsegna

(Italian, Sienese, active ca. 1278–1318; Tempera & gold on wood)

slide20

Shrine of the Virgin

ca. 1300;

German, Made in Rhine valley

Rare devotional shrine designed to make manifest the miracle of the Incarnation, by which God became human.

Closed, it is a statuette of the enthroned Virgin Mary nursing the Christ Child…

slide21

When opened, the shrine shows a sculptural representation of the Trinity (the figure of Christ and the dove of the Holy Spirit are lost), mystically revealing that salvation is achieved through Christ incarnate.

On wings are scenes of Christ’s Nativity.

slide22

Virgin and Child, 1290–1300English; perhaps made in London

It was used as a personal devotional object. The statues were made at a time when the cult of the Virgin had reached its peak of popularity.

The composition emphasizes the reciprocal tenderness between the mother and child: the Virgin turns slightly to her left to face the now-missing infant Christ.

Actual Medieval Women

  • A. Some Common Features and Types
  • B. Women Religious & Mystics – 3 Examples:
  • 1. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
  • 2. Christina of Markyate (10/96/98-c.1160)
  • 3. Elisabeth of Schönau
slide24

When a woman is making love with a man, a sense of heat in her brain, which brings with it sensual delight, communicates the taste of that delight during the act and summons forth the emission of the man's seed. And when the seed has fallen into its place, that vehement heat descending from her brain draws the seed to itself and holds it, and soon the woman's sexual organs contract, and all the parts that are ready to open up during the time of menstruation now close, in the same way as a strong man can old something enclosed in his fist.

from the Scivias Codex (1174)
