A new article on Boucicaut and Christine de Pizan

A colleague drew my attention to this:

Zenep Kocabiyikoglu Cecen, "Two different views of knighthood in the early fifteenth century:  Le Livre de Bouciquaut and the works of Christine de Pizan," Journal of Military History 76(2012): 9-35.

Summary:  the big differences in attitude are a strong argument against Christine's authorship of the Livre.  I agree.
