« La « matière de Troie » en Angleterre, XIIe-XVe siècles »

Abstract : In England, linked with the Arthurian myth, the foundation myth of Great Britain, and of London, the « New Troy », by Brutus, grandson of Eneas (the legendary founder of Rome), was especially important from the twelfth-century on, as well as for the genealogical legitimacy of Plantagenet and Lancaster, as for its multiple dimensions, notably civilising and, sometimes, imperialistic. In this short paper, the presentation of medieval adaptations of foundational works largely demonstrate this case.
