"Masculinities and Femininities in the Middle Ages and Renaissance is thus a heavyweight contribution to the subject." (Andrew Breeze, in: Mediaevistik, vol. 24, 2011, p. 669)

"Bringing together a stimulating variety of essays and offering a quite broad geographical and chronological perspective, this bibliographically informed volume is an interesting contribution to the burgeoning literature on medieval and Renaissance culture, gender, and sexuality, especially with its focus on masculinity." (Androniki Dialeti, in: Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. XLIII/1, Spring 2012, p. 174-175)
