Through the commentary of book IV of Wolfram’s Parzival a significant desideratum within Parzival-commentary has been filled. The volume at hand is particularly useful in that it concentrates decisively on text indexing while presenting comprehensive information with philological meticulousness and critically examining its evidence. A special emphasis is placed upon editorial-philological problems of text production, on lexical and grammatical difficulties as well as on Wolframs unique style. The volume is completed by the latest research results on material culture and an extensive examination of frequently discussed problems of interpretation.
This series, which will comprise doctoral and professorial dissertations and other monographs as well as collective volumes, aims at highlighting and promoting interdisciplinarity in Medieval Studies even more than is currently the case. Works from all branches of Medieval Studies will be accepted, provided they emphasise the aspect of interdisciplinarity, i.e. they attempt to transgress the boundaries of any single subject.
