The grave of Bettina d’Andrea (1355)

Original Latin text:

sepulcrum domine bitine, filie qdam [quondam] domini iohanis andrea de bononia archidoctoris decretorum [et] uxoris domini iohanis de sancto georgio de bononia doctoris decreto[rum] que obiit anno domini MCCCLV die lune quinto octubris

Which roughly translates into English as:

The grave of Lady Bettina, daughter of master Giovanni d’Andrea from Bologna, great doctor in law, and wife of master Giovanni di San Giorgio from Bologna, doctor in law, who died in 1355, Monday 5th October

Big thanks to for the photos and translation.

Bettina and Novella D’Andrea
Art by Intagliogia (tumblr)
Bettina and Novella d’Andrea were the daughters of Giovanni d’Andrea, a noted expert in canon law.  Giovanni is said to have educated both his daughters to the level of a university lecturer.  
Bettina (d. 1355) married Giovanni di San Giorgio, a law professor at the University of Padua.  She is believed to have taught law and philosophy at the University of Padua.  
Novella (b. 1312) is believed to have taught her father’s classes at the University of Bologna when he was unavailable.  According to Christine de Pizan, Novella taught through a curtain so the students would not be distracted by her beauty.  
The careers of Bettina and Novella d’Andrea are disputed, although their father’s career is well documented.  Bettina’s grave describes her as the daughter and wife of scholars rather than as a scholar herself.  Novella’s story was recorded by Christine de Pizan about ninety years after Novella’s birth, but the same story of teaching behind a curtain in Bologna has also been told of Bettisia Gozzadini who lived in the eleventh century.  Dorotea Bucca held a chair in medicine and philosophy at the University of Bologna beginning in 1390.  Like Bettina and Novella, Dorotea’s father was a professor at the University of Bologna, but Dorotea was about fifty years younger than the d’Andrea sisters.  There were multiple female professors in southern Italy at Schola Medica Salernitana throughout the Middle Ages, but at that time Bologna, Padua, and Salerno were not part of the same country.  Trota, a medical writer associated with Schola Medica Salernitana, was a disputed figure until further scholarship in the 1980s established Trota as a real historic woman.

Jon Stewart Goes After Fox in Powerful Ferguson Monologue

I been waiting for the daily show to come back so they could cover this

Jon rip them boys a new asshole 

See, Jon Stewart usually does a lot of satirical humour, but at this point, the writers are just like “fuck the comedy this shit is real” and I was so happy to see that they finally covered this, and it was really well done.
