This interdisciplinary study explores how classical ideals of generosity influenced the writing and practice of gift giving in medieval Europe. In assuming that medieval gift giving was shaped by oral 'folk models', historians have traditionally followed in the footsteps of social anthropologists and sociologists such as Marcel Mauss and Pierre Bourdieu. This first in-depth investigation into the influence of the classical ideals of generosity and gift giving in medieval Europe reveals to the contrary how historians have underestimated the impact of classical literature and philosophy on medieval culture and ritual. Focusing on the idea of the gift expounded in the classical texts read most widely in the Middle Ages, including Seneca the Younger's De beneficiis and Cicero's De officiis, Lars Kj'r investigates how these ideas were received, adapted and utilised by medieval writers across a range of genres, and how they influenced the practice of generosity.

This is a book about people and ideas. In reactions to crisis-both at the time, and in memory years or centuries later-it is possible to discern and to evaluate beliefs about causation, responsibility, history, and the nature of relationships between leaders and followers. Royal Responsibility in Anglo-Norman Historical Writing explores changes in narrative and political thought in Anglo-Norman historical writing, arguing that twelfth-century Englishwriters attribute more causal and moral responsibility to kings than do their pre-Norman sources for the Danish and Norman invasions of England. The consistent agendas which these historians imposed on accounts ofthe past illuminate a distinct phenomenon in twelfth-century historical thinking. Their shared, new ideas about royal responsibility transcended genre, origin, providential history, language, and loyalty.

Naturalism and the Troubadour Ethic

This study examines the troubadour ethic as expressed in the Provençal lyrics and the De Amore of Andreas Capellanus. It addresses, in particular, the question of the singularity and origin of the courtly love ideals and the relation of these ideals to the twelfth-century thought of western Europe. It defines and discusses many aspects of the waxing Naturalism of the period-nominalism, autobiography, the new historiography, the uses of rationality, a closed system of natural explanations, etc. - , and concludes that the development of a 'unique' courtly love ethic is directly associated with and may in large part take its origin from a naturalistic influence penetrating into every avenue of twelfth century thought.
