“Christine de Pizan: The City of Ladies and The City of God” 
by Peter King (University of Toronto).


Christine de Pizan’s The City of Ladies has been considered a groundbreaking work of medieval history and a (proto-)feminist tract. Here I want to talk about it as a work of political philosophy, whose debt to Augustine, signaled in its title, seems largely to have been overlooked — a debt that sheds light on both its historical and its feminist credentials.

No registration needed. You can watch live and participate in the Q & A following this Zoom link: https://iea-paris.zoom.us/j/91117963985
