A new article on Boucicaut and Christine de Pizan
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.
