Popular Abstract in Swedish

S:t Germer och s:t Josse var två helgon som levde i norra Frankrike på 600-talet. Deras liv nedtecknades ganska kort tid efter deras död i tre olika versioner av författare som skrev på latin. I början av 1200-talet sammanställde Pierre de Beauvais detta material till två diktverk på franska, skrivna på åttastavig vers, 874 respektive 820 versar. Avhandlingen är en kritisk utgåva av denna fornfranska text. I arbetet finns också en resumé av helgonens liv på modern franska, en studie av författarens språk och verskonst, förklarande noter, förteckning över egennamn och en ordlista.
Abstract
The Life of Saint Germer and the Life of Saint Josse are two poems consisting of 874 and 820 octosyllabic verses respectively. They were written in the beginning of the 13th century by Pierre de Beauvais. The two poems are preserved in one manuscript only, the Grand recueil la Clayette, Paris, Bibl. nat. Nouv. acq. fr. 13521, written in the latter half of the 13th century by a scribe who was from the region of Beauvais. Since the manuscript was considered to be lost from 1773 to 1951, most previous work on it has been founded on a transcription made in the 18th century. The two saints lived in the 7th century, in Beauvais and in northern Picardy respectively. Their lives were written in latin in several versions. In the introduction to... (More)

In the introduction to this edition the relationships of the latin lives and Pierre's two poems in French are discussed as well as the later French versions. In the introduction there is also an investigation of the author's versification and language. The text is followed by explanatory notes, an index of proper names and a glossary. (Less)
