The Crusader's Return

Abstract : The first paper examines the context, form, function, and prestige of the mantle in French Romance literature. The second focusses on medieval French cross-dressing literature with emphasis on the literature’s interaction with canon law and visual depictions of cross-dressing in manuscript miniatures. Finally, a sculpture in the Musée Lorrain, Nancy, known as ‘Le Retour du Croisé’, is usually interpreted as a lady greeting her husband on his return from the 2nd Crusade, but close examination of her dress suggests that she, too, travelled to the Holy Land.
