Description

This panel will bring together scholars working on the wider reception history of the Historia regum Britaniae in medieval and early modern Britain, with the hope of including papers on texts from across England, Scotland, and Wales. Papers on the ideological and political use of the Historia, as well as the manuscript context of the chronicles within the Galfridian tradition, will be highly encouraged. The selected papers will demonstrate the various uses of Geoffrey's Historia regum Britanniae throughout history, and will encourage a dialogue between historians, literary scholars, and book historians concerning the afterlife of 'one of the most influential books ever written' (Tatlock, 1950).
