"L'index (...) est très utile car bien plus qu'un simple liste de noms, il offre pour chaque personnage ou lieu un commentaire fourni et des analyses littéraires." (Michellle Szkilnik, dans: Le Moyen Âge, CXXI, 2015, p. 254-258)


Brepols’ multiple-volume series The Lancelot Prose of Yale 229 includes illustrated text editions of l’Agrauains, La Queste del Saint Graal, and La Mort le Roi Artu, along with a collection of essays based on the thirteenth-century manuscript, Yale 229, housed at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University. An additional collection of essays, a guide to the decoration of the manuscript, and a searchable corpus text are projected for the series.
