(p.251) Conclusion Feminine Virtue, Female Agency, and the Legacy of Eiximenis
Chariots of Ladies

This concluding chapter considers the legacy of Eiximenis in the gender discourse of the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries. It examines how this discourse had changed during the time of the writing of the Llibre de les dones from the late fourteenth century to Vives's De institutione and Eiximenis's Carro de las donas in the early sixteenth. More broadly, the chapter asks what these literary works can tell us about ideology, gender, and religion; and how these compare with the real-life experiences of the women to whom these works referred, from Sanxa Ximenis d'Arenós to Maria de Luna, and from Isabel the Catholic to Catalina of Habsburg.

Keywords:   Eiximenis's legacy, gender discourse, women's real-life experiences, ideology, gender, religion
