Chretien de Troyes was France's great medieval poet - inventor of the genre of courtly romance and popularizer of the Arthurian legend. The 44 surviving manuscripts of his work (ten of them illuminated) pose a number of questions about who used these books and in what way. In "Sealed in Parchment", Sandra Hindman scrutinizes both text and images to reveal what the manuscripts can tell us about medieval society and politics.
