Feminae: Medieval Women and Gender Index

Feminae is a multilingual scholarly index that covers articles about women, sexuality, and gender during the Middle Ages (450 CE to 1500 CE) collected from over 500 journals published from 1990 to the present. Feminae also includes numerous essay collections (it excludes books written by a single author). Advanced searching includes subjects found in Feminae's thesaurus: geographical area, century, illustration, language, and primary evidence (type of document), and also allows for image searches.
