The Middle Ages as a novel

Middle Ages has received, maybe more than other historical periods, different narrations and representations sometimes opposing. We know that an historical epoch, and then also the medieval millennium, is not existing as defined and unitary object, but in front of multiple readings that the Middle Ages in the course of history has received, it becomes difficult to oppose to strong and unitary representations an hypothesis in which emerges various and plural aspects. In the next isssue of “Doctor Virtualis”, we propose to study the Middle Ages from the point of view of narration: a Middle Ages that narrates itself and a Middle Ages as place of narrations.
