This is a 14th century German treatise on swordsmanship, and yes, that is a woman on the left in both pictures, and a monk on the right. There is a lot of debate as to the proper interpretation of this treatise, but I think the main takeaway is that maybe the lives of medieval women (and monks) were not as dull as we sometimes assume.
