The unidirectional tendency of traditional historiography in the treatment of its objects of study leads to a certain impossibility in the investigation of gender relations in medieval studies, mainly in its articulation with the literary. The systemic orientation of this historiographical model, based on prerogatives of the so-called gender coloniality with its unrivaled androcentric worldview, has always been constituted of mental and rhetorical formations built and perpetuated by the strength of its origin and tradition. Intending to investigate/deconstruct some aspects of the construction of the femininereality within the scope of ideological and politically presented configurations in the Middle Ages, named “long” by Jacques Le Goff(2008), this paperexamines theissueof becoming woman in authors and works of the Middle Ages. To this end, it proceeds to a significant anthological rescue of medieval texts of fundamental importance for the treatment of this complex and controversial subject of medieval history and culture. In the course of this critical-deconstructive examination, covering the range from Eveto the ladies of Christine de Pizan's Le Livre de la Cité des Dames,the study analyzessome of the traces and foundations of the medieval misogyny in its relationship with Howard Bloch's romantic love, one of most interesting phenomena in the history of Western thought and culture.
