The French of Outremer

Fabio Zinelli

Fordham University Press

Italy, so often the point of transit between Latin West and Latin East, also played a critical role as cultural mediator. The scripta of Outremer French, in texts written in Italy both before and after 1291, reveals how Italian communities participated in this exchange. More than just a scribal habit or foreign accent, Outremer French instead had clear political connotations for the Italian writers and copyists who invoked it in their texts.
