Posted by Alyssa Berthiaume, Marketing Coordinator

Ashgate is proud to announce that Gonzalo de Berceo and the Latin Miracles of the Virgin, edited by Patricia Timmons and Robert Boeing, was selected by Feminae: Medieval Women and Gender Index as their translation of the month.

Timmons & Boenig NEWFeminae includes journal articles, book reviews and contributing essays on women, sexuality and gender during the Middle Ages. Each month indexers of Feminae select a translation significant to these themes. By choosing a translation each month, viewers have more opportunity to see a vast collection of newly translated medieval texts with its focus on women and gender studies. Currently, Feminae has over 1800 records of translations, now with Gonzalo de Berceo and the Latin Miracles of the Virgin within their collection.

In Gonzalo de Berceo and the Latin Miracles of the Virgin, Patricia Timmons and Robert Boenig present the first English translation of a twelfth-century Latin collection of miracles that Berceo, the first named poet in the Spanish language, used as a source for his thirteenth-century Spanish collection Milagros de Nuestra Señora. They include the original Latin text, translations of the Latin Miracles, including analyses of “Saint Peter and the Lustful Monk” and “The Jews of Toledo.”
