Description

Each of the presenters is challenging long-held scholarly perception regarding sources and influences on the authors in the authors and texts they discuss, be that on the theme of marriage influenced by Hugh of St. Victor, the influence of Jenseitsreisen /Book of Enoch on Wolfram's Grail mythology, or the historical context on Friedrich von Hausen's minnelied "min herze und min life diu wellent scheiden" not being the third crusade but triggered by the memory of the first crusade that the previous generation had lived through.
