Christianity and Romance in Medieval England

The relationship between the Christianity of medieval culture and its most characteristic narrative, the romance, is complex and the modern reading of it is too often confused. Not only can it be difficult to negotiate the distant, sometimes alien concepts of religious cultures of past centuries in a modern, secular, multi-cultural society, but there is no straightforward Christian context of Middle English romance - or of medieval romance in general, although this volume focuses on the romances of England. Medieval audiences had apparently very different expectations and demands of their entertainment: some looking for, and evidently finding, moral exempla and analogues of biblical narratives, others secular, even sensational, entertainment of a type condemned by moralising voices. BR> The essays collected here show how the romances of medieval England engage with its Christian culture. Topics include the handling of material from pre-Christian cultures, classical and Celtic, the effect of the Crusades, the meaning of chivalry, and the place of women in pious romances. Case studies, including Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Malory's Morte Darthur, offer new readings and ideas for teaching romance to contemporary students. Thtey do not present a single view of a complex situation, but demonstrate the importance of reading romances with an awareness of the knowledge and cultural capital represented by Christianity for its original writers and audiences.

Romance and the Gentry in Late Medieval England sheds new light on Middle English romance, the most popular genre of secular literature in late medieval England. Romances are the predecessors to modern science fiction and Westerns: like these genres, they are often thought of as representative of the "popular culture" of their day. This book, however, offers a different perspective on the genre of medieval English romance, showing that, in fact, suchtexts appealed primarily to the gentry, England's elite landowners who lacked titles of nobility. To make this case, Romance and the Gentry in Late Medieval England examines surviving manuscripts, surveys recentwork by historians on the gentry, and provides analyses of the literary texts, all of which, together, shows this genre speaking to this social class.
