Description

This papers presented in this panel investigate the texts that transmit the story of the Kölbigk dancers (the "Cursed Carolers") and the contexts in which they circulated.

More broadly, this session emphasizes the multiple meanings that short texts based on folkloric stories could have in the Middle Ages. Brad Phillis
