Chapter Summary

This section presents sigla of the book Petronius Rediuiuus et Helias Tripolanensis: id est Petronius Rediuiuus Quod Heliae Tripolanensis Videtur Necnon Fragmenta (Alia) Heliae Tripolanensis. Elias of Thriplow, a village near Cambridge, was a schoolmaster in the thirteenth century. Apart from his complete Serium Senectutis, he wrote several works that have survived only as extracts, many of which are extensive. Elias seemingly wrote what has been called Petronius Rediuiuus, a collection of tales and of essays about knights, merchants, women, and farmers. Elias is important for his criticisms of medieval society, for the history of narrative literature, and for the history of English humanism.
