Synopsis

The occupation with Classical Antiquity had a seminal influence on the medieval history of ideas. Clasical themes, motifs and texts played a decisive role in the development of the vernacular novel. Classical mythology is constantly present throughout the Middle Ages in a broad tradition of exemplars and comparisons. This text is structured as a dictionary of names, giving a systematic overview of the reception of Classical Antiquity in the German High Middle Ages. It registers all the characters from classical mythology and history which occur in secular, sacred and historiographic literature from approximately 1100-1350. The articles are divided into a documentation section with information on the contents, a commentary, which presents the baselines and fault lines in the reception, together with links to the reception of Classical Antiquity in Medieval Latin and Romance literature.
