Chroniclers such as Primat writing about the Capetians in the 1270s made little mention of holy women, but in the 1280s, spurred on by canonization hearings for Louis IX, there was a flurry of literary attempts to shape perception of recent events around Isabelle of France and Elizabeth of Spalbeek, most importantly in writings by Agnes of Harcourt and William of Nangis. Moreover, far to the south the Franciscan chronicler Salimbene wrote of Douceline of Digne as well as the prophecies of an unnamed Italian holy woman concerning Philip III and Charles of Anjou.

Keywords:   Isabelle of France, Agnes of Harcourt, Elizabeth of Spalbeek, Primat, William of Nangis, Salimbene, Douceline of Digne, King Philip III of France, Charles of Anjou
