Medieval Ovid: Frame Narrative and Political Allegory, Hardback Book

Medieval Ovid: Frame Narrative and Political Allegory Hardback

Part of the The New Middle Ages series


Ovid's Metamorphoses played an irrefutably important role in the integration of pagan mythology in Christian texts during the Middle Ages.

This book is the only study to consider this Ovidian revival as part of a cultural shift disintegrating the boundaries between not only sacred and profane literacy but also between academic and secular politics.
