Conclusion

  • Amanda J. Gerber
Part of the The New Middle Ages book series (TNMA)

Abstract

The book’s conclusion refines the discussion of Ovid’s influence in the Middle Ages to a scholastic and literary conversation that spanned centuries and afforded space for each new writer’s additions and authorial manipulations. The late medieval floruit of frame narratives hereby became less of an attestation to Ovidian auctoritas than to the malleable material and formats they offered to developing secular writers and their increasingly cosmopolitan consciences.
