Temas medievales

LOUZADA FONSECA, Pedro Carlos. Difamación y defensa de la mujer en la Edad Media: Pasajes obligatorios. Temas mediev. [online]. 2010, vol.18, pp.73-94. ISSN 0327-5094.

The present article analyzes the work of certain anti-feminist authors who composed pictures of medieval women during the period between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries. The main roots of this anti feminism can be traced in the classical world and in patristic literature, to finally reach its late medieval vernacular adaptation. The author of the article finally analyzes and criticizes certain characteristics of the period's prevailing misogyny, as well as the first manifestations in defense of women which appear in literature towards the end of the period.

Keywords : Medieval misogyny; Woman; Ideology.
