Literary Trends in the Early 13th Century

Lecture no. 21 from the course: Years that Changed History: 1215

Literary Trends in the Early 13th Century

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Religious writing was flourishing in 1215, and religious tracts and guides provide a crucial window into 13th-century spirituality and behavior. Beyond religion, however, the Norse and Icelandic sagas offer great insight into the myths, events, and stories of a pagan, pre-Christian past, while the Arthurian legend grew in popularity throughout the medieval world. Review this amazing—and sometimes amazingly weird—literature.
