The discovery of Christine Reno and Liliane Dulac2 that Christine translated into French a section of Thomas Aquinas’s Commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics in her Advision Cristine resolved any doubts about her ability to read Latin. The evidence I offer here in support of the idea that she actually composed two lines in Latin further strengthens our assessment of her competency in the language.
