Synopsis

The first volume of Le lingue nordiche nel medioevo offers extracts of central and typical medieval Nordic texts from the period 1200–1500. There are four texts from each of the languages Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Icelandic, as well a a single text in Guthnic. Each text has a brief introduction, a facing translation into Italian, and a broad selection of textual notes. All texts have been transcribed and edited by the authors themselves, and for each text a facsimile is reproduced in order to display the manuscript from which the text has been edited. The general introduction aims at putting the linguistic development of the Nordic languages into perspective, as well as the textual genres and the manuscripts themselves.
