Abstract [en]

This article surveys previous and recent scholarship and theoretical reflections on fictionality, and on the divisions and relations between history and literature in medieval texts. Evidence and examples from scholarly literature will be taken from various geographical contexts, academic disciplines and communities. Thus, it is my intention to set out a state of the question, and furthermore to suggest some lines and prospects for further research in this field.
