Abstract

This paper examines the Speculum dominarum of Durand of Champagne, dedicated to Jeanne of Navarre, with particular attention to its more widely diffused French translation, the Miroir des dames. It considers the work's relationship to certain other ethical and religious texts from the early fourteenth century, and considers what is known about its translation and its surviving manuscripts. Additionally, we provide in an appendix a new edition of the Miroir's prologue and descriptions of the thirteen extant Miroir manuscripts. We also include a comparative table that examines an interpolated passage of the Speculum dominarum in Jean de Vignay's Le Jeu des échecs moralisés and its relationship to the original Latin and the later French translation of the Miroir.
