Item description for Von Der Liebe: Drei Bucher (de Gruyter Texte) by Andreas Koniglicher Holkapellan...
Andreas Capellanus wrote De Amore, his famous Latin treatise on marriage, around 1186. Enhanced by theological, medical and legal wisdom, his book of the art of loving greatly influenced the literature of courtly love during the Middle Ages.
This monolingual textbook edition provides a modern German translation in addition to explanatory notes on the sources and a language commentary to aid comprehension of particular passages and the difficulties of translation. A bibliography and a postscript that sets the work in its literary context round off this new translation.
In terms of the history of human thought and literature, this famous text is of great relevance to students, literary scholars and medievalists alike, and serves as the basis for an understanding of courtly love poetry during the Middle Ages.
