  • Title: Franco-Scandinavian Literary Transmission in the Middle Ages: Two Old Norse Translations of Chretien de Troyes -- "Ivens Saga" and "Erex Saga" [In the thirteenth century, some of Chretien’s Old French romances were translated into Old Norse sagas. The author compares two Norse translations of Chretien’s “Yvain” and “Erec et Enide” and finds that the saga-authors censor Chretien’s sexual references and emphasize the role of the Church over that of Arthur.
