The Eufemiavisor and Courtly Culture: Time, Texts and Cultural Transfer

11–13 October, Centre for Medieval Studies, Stockholm University

A Marcus Wallenberg Symposium

The chivalric romances of the Eufemiavisor (‘Songs of Eufemia’, i.e. Herr Ivan, Hertig Fredrik av Normandie and Flores och Blanzeflor) mark the beginning of Swedish literary history and represent a powerful manifestation of European courtly culture in Scandinavia. The alleged patron of these texts, Queen Eufemia of Norway, died on May 1, 1312. In 2012, the 700th anniversary of that year will be observed.

This conference is dedicated to the Eufemiavisor. However, the aim is to focus not only on the texts themselves, but also on their European origin and the context in which these texts were created and transmitted.
