Mapping the Medieval Woman is a digital project that visualizes women’s contributions to the cityscape of fourteenth-century Paris. While past histories have focused on the patronage of key men like Louis IX or Charles V, this project seeks to foreground women, who have often been overlooked or erased through years of focus on their medieval male counterparts. Women made their marks on the urban landscape of Paris by participating in rituals, making public donations of lavish works of art, founding and endowing colleges, as well as through their residence, entries, marriages, and burials. In addition to the contributions of women who are more well-known to modern audiences, this project explores female monasticism, and silk production, mapping areas where women were present and even dominant. Women were simply ubiquitous and made Paris the vibrant and remarkable city it was and continues to be.
