"Wenn man eine kompetente Einführung in die mythentheoretischen Diskussionen der Altgermanistik und profunde Fallanalysen sucht, wird man den Band mit viel Gewinn lesen."Gerhard Wolf in: Das Mittelalter 2/2006

Main Description
The volume presents papers on the subject of "Myths in the Middle Ages", and harnesses the theoretical discussions on the concept of myth for German medieval studies. It is divided into three sections, which stand for various methodological approaches: I. Myth and Christianity, II. Myth and Narrative, III. Myth and Presence. The outcome is that the Middle Ages developed (narrative) strategies on different levels for dealing with mythical material.
