These sixteen essays deal with many aspects of medieval literature: problems of Old Saxon, Old High German, Old English words, and Old Norse literature; devotional biography, hagiography, and autobiography; the reinterpretation of specific words from the courtly era; a manuscript in which the Hebrew alphabet is used to render a collection of randomly chosen Christian prayers; medieval descriptions of India; and a demonstration of how to compile an onomasiological index for a language period such as Early New High German.
