Senatulus sive Gynajkosynedrion – utopia, inversus mundi, or utopian satire? Erasmus of Rotterdam on the council of women

In 1528 Erasmus of Rotterdam had published dialogue Senatulus sive Gynajkosynedrion, which is part of the popular collection Colloquia familiaria. In this text, there are women, who deliberate about organisation of future council of women. The idea of legislative women, challenging traditional social order („the world upside down”) was used by the author to indicate certain matters, relating to the social status or privilege of women. The question, which is included in the title of the article, is a result of the ambivalence of the text, because Senatulus can be readed not only as a joke of great humanist, but also as a satire on Erasmus’s contemporary political and social life.
