Project B02

The Marvelous as a Configuration of Knowledge in Literature of the Middle Ages

Objects, persons and scenarios that can be referred to by the term ‘marvellous’ play an important role in the fictional literature of the High and Late Middle Ages. The project will be concerned with the question of how the marvellous itself can be imagined as a form of knowledge and how it can be brought into relation to other forms of knowledge. Furthermore, the project seeks to analyse and render more precise the as yet under-theorized concept of the marvellous itself.

A list of publications and events organized by the project can be accessed on the German CRC 980 website.
