Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is a book of major importance to all medievalists ... The world of the troubadours successfully challenges or at leaxst questions many of the received orthodoxies about the South of France ... Dr Paterson's erudition and grasp of her subject are enviable, and she has produced a book which will certainly become a classic in its field.' The Times Literary Supplement
