About This Book

The renowned and illustrious tales of King Arthur, his knights and the Round Table pervade all European vernaculars, as well as the Latin tradition. Arthurian narrative material, which had originally been transmitted in oral culture, began to be inscribed regularly in the twelfth century, developing from (pseudo-)historical beginnings in the Latin chronicles of "historians" such as Geoffrey of Monmouth into masterful literary works like the romances of Chrétien de Troyes. Evidently a big hit, Arthur found himself being swiftly translated, adapted and integrated into the literary traditions of almost every European vernacular during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. This Handbook seeks to showcase the European character of Arthurian romance both past and present.By working across national philological boundaries, which in the past have tended to segregate the study of Arthurian romance according to language, as well as by exploring primary texts from different vernaculars and the Latin tradition in conjunction with recent theoretical concepts and approaches, this Handbook brings together a pioneering and more complete view of the specifically European context of Arthurian romance, and promotes the more connected study of Arthurian literature across the entirety of its European context.

This index provides references to names of people/characters, place names, important objects, manuscript shelfmarks and titles of primary texts. The names of editors of primary texts and scholars are included only where their works are included as core subject in a discussion (rather than as supporting criticism). In the interests of navigational ease, text titles commencing with an article are indexed by the first proper word, with the article transposed to the end of the entry. The same is true of honorifics/personal titles (e.g. “Sir”), except where that title is the first word of a primary text’s title. Character names with different spellings across different languages are usually maintained and given as separate entries so as to aid navigation to a particular text or set of texts (e.g. Gawain/Gauvain/Walewain/Gwalchmei, and so on), but cross-references are occasionally given when the editors deemed this to be helpful.
