Winkler used to be questioned by way of the obvious disjuncture among the text of the manuscript and the drawing, which he prompt was once additional ca. 1200. Pippal both sees a disjuncture among textual content and drawing, with out providing a separate date for the latter. The authors of Ornamenta Ecclesiae agree that the drawing isn't an indication of the textual content, yet think it to be coeval; description explains the picture by way of scholastic disputatio, yet makes no connection with the gendering of the disputants. See Johanek, fifty two, in this scene as one in all disputatio; Johanek’s description diverges sharply from Winkler’s and Pippal’s in that he reads the double-page drawing as an all-male (! ) tuition scene and taking little jesus to college 111 disputation is in development, this time throughout genders: at the left web page, a guy in secular costume is seated crosslegged on a faldistorium and argues with a laywoman seated on a backless stone throne (a cathedra? ) at the contrary web page (Àg. 5). She on my own holds a e-book, drawn with its conceal and jewelled backbone noticeable. each one disputant is observed through a adolescence of an analogous intercourse; those are labelled fautores (supporters, fans). The disputation is played in the course of the gestures of argument and through the inscribed speech: the man’s “est / est,” to which the lady opposes “non est / non est. ”49 The fautores, too, take part with their gesturing fingers within the disputation; the younger guy is labelled as male dicit, the younger girl bene dicit. therefore a chiastic dating hyperlinks the seated girl with the younger guy at the contrary web page, and the mature guy with the younger girl. during this monastic manuscript, the conceit of the recent colleges is condemned through staging the disputation as a unconditionally secular job of questionable morality, one who is against the stern gender separation practiced in colleges and monasteries. the girl and the younger woman deliver the realm into the college. they're marked by way of their loss of restraint, which Áouts norms of female habit: the seated woman’s lengthy hair Áows down her shoulders in an unruly demeanour, whereas her emphatic proÀle place makes her demonstrative gesture, and mainly her open “loudly” talking mouth, stand out. All of those actual markers defy the norms of courtly maze, or restraint, prescribed to ladies on the time. The younger girl’s instructing gesture (index and heart Ànger of her correct hand tapping opposed to the palm of her left hand) might were thought of beside the point, and to force the detrimental aspect domestic, it contrasts with the best way her tunic has parted to bare either her thighs. regardless of the strong visible presence of those ladies, whose equivalent prestige as disputants could be remarkable, the moralizing misogynistic innuendo is sort of transparent.
