Chapter Summary

This chapter considers works of literature associated with the Frankish Peloponnese between the 13th and the 15th centuries. That word "literature" suggests a body of work, a collection of fixed and noteworthy texts which exist to be read, and of course, we have a body of texts surviving from Frankish Greece. The chapter looks at this activity of the word in Frankish Greece, and focuses on the Principality of the Morea in the Peloponnese. As Frankish Greece is a large area both in terms of time and geography, it can be difficult to speak sensibly and concisely over the whole, and this chapter thus concentrates on a more specific area and time. The chapter also consider the Chansonnier du Roi, a songbook associated with Prince William II de Villehardouin in the third quarter of the 13th century.

Keywords: Frankish Greece; literature; Morea; Peloponnese; Prince William II de Villehardouin
