Feminae: Medieval Women and Gender Index covers journal articles, book reviews, and essays in books about women, sexuality, and gender during the Middle Ages. Books written by a single author are not indexed by Feminae.
There are over 20,000 records in the database currently, and more than five hundred records are added every four months. Feminae indexes the most current year for which full journal volumes are available along with backlog years, and they are now working both on 2006-2007 and on the remaining publications from 1990 through 2005.
The time period covered is 450 C.E. to 1500 C.E. with Russia extending to 1613, the beginning of the Romanov dynasty, because the sixteenth century is still medieval in social and political terms. The geographic area is Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East as well as areas in which Europeans travelled.
Subject coverage for gender and sexuality means that articles on masculinity and male homosexuality are included. Publications in English, French, German, and Spanish have been indexed since the project began in 1996. Materials in Italian (published from 1990 to the present) began to be included in the database in May 2001.
