Multi-narrative organisation in high medieval Latin tale compilations

Start - End 
2016 - 2018 (completed)



My research project at Stockholm University pertains to questions of narrative framing and other forms of multi-narrative organisation in High Medieval Latin tale compilations: how are these compilations organised and to what avail? How does this phenomenon in Latin literature relate to other literary traditions and corpora (Classical, medieval vernacular, Oriental)? Texts of interest include Petrus Alfonsi’s Disciplina clericalis, Alta Silva’s Dolopathos, the Historia septem sapientum, Walter Map’s De nugis curialium and Caesarius of Heisterbach’s Dialogus miraculorum.
