    • Magdalia is also one of my favourites, it a shame that it´s nearly forgotten. I also like the story connected to it. A noble woman called Magdalia is visited by a priest. He asks her why she has so many books in her room. The lady´s answer is that reading is her greatest pleasure and that she want to educate herself as much as possible. The priest explains that he prefers gambling and that women should not waste their weaker mind on Latin. And she replies that she prefers to stay irrational and use all her brain on learning than being stupid.
