Most widely held works by Christine
The book of the city of ladies by Christine( Book )
27 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in English and held by 1,875 libraries worldwide
Written in 1405. The story opens with Christine wondering why so many great philosophers, orators, and poets consistently malign women in their works. She wonders how their claims could be true when compared to the natural behavior and character of women. Three celestial ladies appear before her. They explain that they have come to explain the causes of anti-feminism and to reveal womankind's true nature. They will also help her build a fortified city, an ideal city, in which all noble women of the past, present, and future can live undisturbed
The book of the duke of true lovers by Christine( Book )
15 editions published between 1908 and 2012 in English and held by 931 libraries worldwide
Recounts the progress of a fifteen-year, clandestine love affair between the Duke, a young knight, and a married noblewoman in fourteenth century France
The book of deeds of arms and of chivalry by Christine( file )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 817 libraries worldwide
It is unexpected in any era to find a woman writing a book on the art of warfare, but in the fifteenth century it was unbelievable. Not surprisingly, therefore, Christine de Pizan's The Book of Deeds of Arms & of Chivalry, written around 1410, has often been regarded with disdain. Many have assumed that Christine was simply copying or pilfering earlier military manuals. But, as Sumner Willard & Charity Cannon Willard show in this faithful English translation, The Book of Deeds of Arms & of Chivalry contains much that is original to Christine. As a military manual it tells us a great deal about the strategy, tactics, & technology of medieval warfare & is one of our most important sources for early gunpowder weapon technology. It also includes a fascinating discussion of Just War. Since the end of the fifteenth century, The Book of Deeds of Arms & of Chivalry has been available primarily through Antoine Verard's imprint of 1488 or William Caxton's 1489 translation, The Book of the Order of Chivalry. Verard even suggested that the work was his own translation of the Roman writer Vegetius, making no mention of Christine's name. Caxton attributed the work to Christine, but it is impossible to identify the manuscript he used for his translation. Moreover, both translations are inaccurate. The Willards correct these inaccuracies in a clear & easy-to-read translation, which they supplement with notes & an introduction that will greatly benefit students, scholars, & enthusiasts alike. Publication of this work should change our perception both of medieval warfare & of Christine de Pizan. Includes information on Frontinus, Hannibal, defense of castles and towns, equipment for assault, sea battles, siege warfare, war machine, Scipio, Vegetius, etc

Née à Venise en 1364, Christine de Pizan est considérée comme la première femme de lettres française à avoir vécu de sa plume. Poétesse, épistolière, traductrice et compilatrice infatigable, elle se distingue des femmes de son époque, et même de la majorité des clercs, par son érudition. D'une oeuvre prolifique et diverse émerge le Livre des faits et bonnes moeurs du sage roi Charles V (1404), biographie riche en détails sur le règne d'un prince qui était également son mentor. Le Livre des faits est aussi un précieux document sur certains épisodes de la guerre de Cent Ans. En effet, alors que le royaume plonge dans la tourmente, cette oeuvre magistrale, d'une extrême utilité pour les historiens, brosse le portrait d'un prince idéal et rappelle les moments importants de la vie d'un roi qu'elle a connu personnellement. Pour la première fois, le lien s'établit de manière puissante et originale entre une esthétique et une politique, un engagement et son expression formelle. Christine incarne l'approche singulière d'une intellectuelle hors norme. À l'aube des temps modernes, la vox poetica est aussi vox politica... et elle est incarnée par une femme. Joël Blanchard est professeur à l'université du Maine et l'un des grands spécialistes du Moyen Âge tardif. Il est l'auteur de plus d'une vingtaine d'ouvrages parmi lesquels on peut citer une biographie sur Philippe de Commynes (Philippe de Commynes, Fayard, 2006), une édition critique des Mémoires (Droz, 2007, 2 vol.), la première traduction des Mémoires de Philippe de Commynes en français moderne (Pocket, « Agora », 2004, puis 2009), la première traduction du Songe du Vieux Pèlerin de Philippe de Mézières en français moderne (Pocket, « Agora », 2008) ; il a également publié Commynes et les procès politiques de Louis XI. Du nouveau sur la lèse-majesté, Picard, 2008, et une édition de la Moralité à six personnages, Droz, 2008. Il prépare actuellement un grand essai sur Louis XI pour les éditions Plon-Perrin
