about this item

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.
Number of Pages: 122.0
Genre: History, Foreign Language Study, Humor
