THE Middle Ages! They seem so far away; intellectually so preposterous, spiritually so strange. Bits of them may touch our sympathy, please our taste; certain of their stories, their romances, as if... More > those straitened ages really were the time of romance, which they were not, God knows, in the sense commonly taken. Now if the pageant of those centuries charm our eyes with forms that seem so full of meaning, why should we stand indifferent to the harnessed processes of mediaeval thinking and the passion surging through the thought? Thought marshaled the great mediaeval procession, which moved to measures of pulsating and glorifying emotion. Let the reader be mindful of his purpose, to follow through the Middle Ages the development of intellectual energy and the growth of emotion. Holding this end in view, we, students all, shall not stray from our quest after those human qualities which impelled the strivings of mediaeval men and women, informed their imaginations, and moved them to love and tears and pity.< Less

More > pronunciation: ​[kʁe.tjɛ̃ də.tʁwa]) (Christian) was a late 12th century French poet and trouvère known for his work on Arthurian subjects, and for originating the character Lancelot.

Little is known of his life, but he seems to have been from Troyes, or at least intimately connected with it, and between 1160 and 1172 he served at the court of his patroness Marie of France, Countess of Champagne, daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine, perhaps as herald-at-arms (as Gaston Paris speculated).Chrétien's works include five major poems in rhyming eight-syllable couplets.
