Course programme Monday 17 October 2022

Germanic literatures: Medieval German Heroic Epic

This module deals with medieval heroic epic in the German language area. The texts of this genre are rich in themes and motifs, and diverse in emphases, while at the same time retaining a number of archetypal elements. Particular attention will be paid to the Nibelung tradition and the Dietrich epics which draw their origins in remote events related to the Germanic Migration Period.

Germanic literatures: Medieval German Courtly Romance

This module focuses on the emergence of medieval verse romances in the German language area. On the basis of a series of significant examples from the works of Hartmann con Aue, Wolfram von Eschenbach and Gottfried von Straßburg, the features of this genre, its relationship to the Romanic sources and its relationship with other medieval German literary genres will be taken into consideration.

Tuesday 18 October 2022

Germanic literatures: Medieval German Lyric (1150-1300)

This module deals with the main aspects of the medieval German Lyric tradition from its beginnings in the mid twelfth century to the early years of the fourteenth century, a distinct period delimited by the main manuscript collections which embrace poems on the theme of love as well as those on didactic, political, and religious subjects. Particular attention will be paid to the nature of the manuscript transmission, to the manuscript illustrations and to the relationship to Old Provençal and Old French lyric.

Germanic literatures: The reception of courtly romance and heroic epic in Scandinavia (sagas and ballads)
The aim of this module is to show how some of the most popular themes and characters of both courtly romance ad heroic epic (e.g. Yvain, Percival, Charlemagne and the Paladins) are transformed and adapted to two of the most characteristic genres of medieval and post-medieval Scandinavian literature: the saga and the ballad.

Wednesday 19 October 2022

Romance literatures: Romance literatures and popular culture

This module analyses the relationship between popular culture, often rife with pre-Christian heritage, and ‘high’ culture. The effects of this dialogical and osmotic relationship can only be understood through the analysis of the literary texts that preserve more or less explicit traces of myths, beliefs, legends, and traditions which lived exclusively in orality.

Romance literatures: Romance literatures and popular culture – Narratio brevis. Case study: barbeoire and papeoire
This module proposes the analysis of two adiaphorous variants of a fabliau by Jean Bodel, Le vilain de Farbu. The aim is to study in depth, on the basis of historical semantics, the relationships existing between the mask (understood as an artefact), the names attributed to it and its uses in war, magic and ritual contexts.

Thursday 20 October 2022

Romance literatures: The text/image relationship

This module deals with the problems connected to the multiple relationships possibly existing between text and image and to the relations established between two language codes, which are distinct (in one case predominantly discursive, in the other predominantly iconic) but, from a semiotic point of view, not too different. The different forms of relationship in praesentia (coexistence of text and images) and in absentia (images that refer to a pre-text) will be investigated.

Romance literatures: The text/image relationship – Epic poem. Case study: Cruet’s pictorial cycle
This module analyses the transposition of an epic poem into images. The pictorial cycle of the Château de Verdon-Dessous near Cruet, the residence of the Lords of Verdon (early 14th century) and its relationship with its source: the Girart de Vienne by Bertrand de Bar-sur-Aube, composed between 1190 and 1224, will be analyzed.

Romance literatures: The text/image relationship – Romance. Case study: the Siedlęcin painting cycle
This module analyses the transposition of a novel into images. The painting cycle of the residential tower of Siedlęcin on the Bóbr (Silesia), possibly built by Henry I, Duke of Jawor, around 1313-1314, and its relationship with Lancelot en prose (first half of the 13th century) will be analyzed.

Friday 21 October 2022

Romance literatures: The Mediterranean Space

This module explores the role of the Mediterranean as a privileged point of contact of cultures and traditions: on its shores and along its routes, stories of different origins and nature meet, have a dialectic relationship, mix and hybridize, becoming the lifeblood of the future ‘European’ literatures.

Romance literatures: The Mediterranean Space. Case study: the Legenda mirabilis
This module is devoted to an apocryphal Life of St Anthony Abbot of which Alfonsus Bonihominis translated six excerpta from Arabic into Latin in 1342. The second one, «S. Antonii iter barcinonense» is particularly interesting, since it exposes in explicit terms the dynamics of narrative reworking of the links which continued to exist between the two shores of the Mediterranean.

Call for IV International Conference of Neo-Latin Cultures – Mediterranean crossroads of tales – Wrocław, June 23-25

Mediterranean crossroads of tales

IV International Conference of Neo-Latin Cultures

University of Wrocław, Institute of Classical, Mediterranean and Oriental Studies June 23-25, 2022

The Mediterranean has always been a crucial commercial hub, a privileged point of contact of cultures and traditions: along the routes that ran through it, throughout the Middle Ages, memories of distant places travelled along men and goods: those of the remotest mysterious and charming East or of an unknown North, which gave news of itself through the ‘streets of amber’ that converged on Byzantium. The con- ference is intended as an opportunity to cover a broad spectrum of issues also related to the concept of pilgrimage, both of a religious and academic type, with particular attention the social and political aspects, and the impact on the formation of the unitary image of culture and politics in Europe. We expect to indicate, in addition to the dynamics of a journey that pilgrims made in sacred places, the characteristics of the travelers, the crossroads of tales in the Middle Ages and during the Renaissance. In the heart of the Mediterranean, stories of different origins and nature met, dialectized, mingled and hybridized to become the lifeblood of future ‘European’ literatures.

Research areas

– The medieval Mediterranean and its relations with the East (texts, images, traditions) – manuscript tradition and associated iconography
– archaeological sites and finds
– linguistic contaminations
– philosophical and cultural contaminations
– sociological problematics
– language teaching through authentic material.
