Title : Genealogie femminili e genealogie maschili nel romanzo cortese [Arthurian romances, particularly those of the Grail, frequently emphasize the maternal line of the hero's descent. Perceval in the work of Chrétien de Troyes is a notable example. Later writers sometimes shifted the genealogical emphasis to the paternal line or sought equilibrium between the two. Ecclesiastical norms reinforced the emphasis on paternal descent. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
