    Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


    Magdalene deal with issues, such as faith, conduct and death, which might have hadrelevance for a widow. Furthermore, the Transitus text, with its focus on the lamentingmother of Christ, could have had a particular interest for the dowager countess, whois known to have commissioned the devotional poem, the Complaint of the Virgin. It is,therefore, suggested in this article that both Joan de Bohun and one of her daughterscould have been the intended audience of the Lives.
