Overview

This edition of the Middle High German epic presents a text close to the ms., but in which the orthography has been normalised to aid readability. It is based on the St Gallen Codex 857 (MS D), which is regarded as the most reliable text. Karl Lachmann’s seminal edition of Parzival from 1833 was intended to present a text such as might have been encountered by an educated reader in the first half of the 13th century. This new edition moves closer towards realising this aim by keeping close to the oldest complete manuscript available and only making corrections where the manuscript text is faulty.
