Oltre la mer salee collects revised versions of twenty-eight papers in English, French, Italian, and Spanish originally presented during the 21st International Congress of the Société Rencesvals pour l’étude des épopées romanes. It includes studies by an international group of specialists in medieval vernacular epic, divided among four major themes: family relations, manuscripts, French epic in England, and travel and exchanges. Their work covers a variety of Old French and Old Occitan epics, as well as adaptations and related texts in Italian, Castilian, Brasilian Portuguese, English, and Greek. It also includes reflections on the interactions between Romance epic, the Latin language, and even the fine arts. This volume convincingly demonstrates one of the key elements of the enduring appeal of medieval Romance epic: its astonishingly international quality, both in the Middle Ages and today.
