Fifteen Medieval Latin Parodies

Toronto Medieval Latin Texts

TMLT 35 • x, 122 pp. • 2018 • ISBN 978-0-88844-485-1 • Paper • $17.95

The fifteen short texts edited here offer vivid examples of the wit and irreverence of medieval Latin parody, a tradition whose humour – sometimes bookish, sometimes ribald, and often both – was never far from the cultures of monastery, school, and court. Mock sermons, prayers, Gospel-texts, and scholastic exercises all bear witness to the wry sensibilities indulged by scholars and clerics alike in their off-hours.
