Christianity and courtly love


Previous Entry Christianity and courtly love Oct. 23rd, 2010 @ 02:49 pm Next Entry
Any recommendations on works that deal with the relationship between courtly love and religious literature in medieval Europe? So far I am looking at material mainly related to either vernacular mysticism like the Beguines or the Arthurian legends. I have all of Barbara Newman's works, some of Peter Dronke's work on medieval love lyrics, and some miscellaneous essays and works on Arthuriana and Christianity. However, I would love to find monographs or even essays that deal more directly with this topic.... Thank you!

I discussed courtly love in my thesis, and found one text that could include what you're looking for: Anne Clark Bartlett, Male Authors, Female Readers: Representation and Subjectivity in Middle English Devotional Literature. Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1995.

Constance Bouchard might also be a good secondary source.
