King Arthur URL:
The conference will present the formation and development of the king Arthur myth, using historiography as the starting point, together with the spirituality found at the end of the 11th century and beginning of the 12th, and the literary tradition over which the texts are built. Starting from these three axes, we will draft a short sketch of the main contributions of the different texts to the Arthurian legend. Themes, character, constitutive elements of one of the most enduring myths in Western Europe, will be analyzed in the context needed, and with a diachronic perspective that will allow to understand apparently irrelevant or decorative traits.
