Froissart Gruuthuse 1r.JPEG


This source seminar will familiarise participants with the complex textual history of Jean Froissart’s Chronicles so that they will be able to use this important text as a historical source in their own research and to critically assess work by other scholars that uses Froissart as a source. Participants will be introduced to the main published scholarship on the textual development of Froissart’s Chronicles and study some selected passages related to Flanders. This will allow them to test for themselves the validity of claims previous generations of scholars have made. The comparative textual analysis will be supported by available digital tools and resources.

The seminar will be led by Prof. Jan Dumolyn (Ghent University) and Prof. Godfried Croenen (University of Liverpool).
