Abstract

Chrétien's Roman de Perceval and the Old Icelandic romance of Dínus saga drambláta share a seam of cognitive dysfunction. This paper considers these otherwise disparate works as tales of quest, hindered by imperfect comprehension, in the context of medieval thought about human development, education, and the proper domain of knowledge.
