The Arthur of Medieval Latin Literature
The Development and Dissemination of the Arthurian Legend in Medieval Latin
Distributed for University of Wales Press
Geoffrey of Monmouth’s History of the Kings of Britain, written in Latin, is one of the earliest sources for many of the legends we now associate with King Arthur and his knights. What is little known, however, is that the tradition of Arthur stories in Latin extended well beyond Geoffrey. This collection offers essays that highlight different aspects of that broader Latin Arthurian tradition.
