Abstract

This article attempts to identify the different styles employed by Christine de Pizan in all of her works using empirically based stylometric analysis. The results, at once heuristic but also statistically significant, suggest as well that besides Christine de Pizan, other medieval French authors such as Jean de Meun, Froissart and Gerson, have at least two, if not more, stylometric footprints. The methods employed and the ramifications of the results are discussed briefly as well.
