Conception of Mary. A Rhyming Translation of Book V of Le Champion Des Dames by Martin Le Franc (1410-1461)
2010 0-7734-1399-5
This translation fills a major need for those unfamiliar with Middle French by granting them access to this nuanced and multifaceted exploration of women’s role in society and of Mary’s role in the Church. The Conception of Mary provides point of contact between medieval and modern scholars interested in gender studies, theological questions, and historical attitudes, while also engaging a general audience seeking further insight into these important questions.
