    Courtliness, Nobility, and Emotional Restraint in the First Old Swedish Translated Romances: on Herr Ivan and Flores och Blanzeflor2017In: Beyond the Piraeus Lion: East Norse Studies from Venice / [ed] Jonathan Adams, Massimiliano Bampi, Copenhagen/Odense: Syddansk Universitetsforlag, 2017, p. 189-212Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    De första riddarromanerna som översattes till fornsvenska, Herr Ivan (1303) och Flores och Blanzeflor (1312), utgör i denna artikel exempel på hur två medeltida översättningar omformulerar känslor och beskrivningar av verbala och fysiska känslomässiga uttryck. De litterära gestalternas emotionella tillstånd presenteras som etiska dilemman, men de svenska översättningarna understryker också deras effekter på den sociala och politiska ordningen. Felaktiga känslor och inte minst omåttliga känslouttryck var problematiska för den politiska eliten. Den svenska 1300-talsaristokratin behövde en litteratur som kunde lansera höviska uppförandekoder, som spred idén om att den som fötts med ädelt blod var mer behärskad, rationell och därmed lämplig att styra riket. I artikeln diskuteras hur översättningarnas funktioner relaterar till olika strata inom den svenska aristokratin och dessas möjliga varierande reception av texterna.

    Den medeltida riddaren som intertextuellt fenomen: Om hjältekonstruktioner i Eufemiavisorna och Erikskrönikan2012In: Hjältar och Hjältinnor: Föreställningar och gestaltningar från Eufemiavisorna till Gösta Berlings saga / [ed] Therése Andersson, Lund: Nordic Academic Press, 2012, 1, p. 41-73Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Riddarromaner och historiska krönikor är området för Kim Bergqvists artikel "Den medeltida riddaren som intertextuellt fenomen: Om hjältekonstruktioner i Eufemiavisorna och Erikskrönikan." I artikeln studerar Bergqvist görandet av hjältar genom analyser av föreställningar om och gestaltningar av medeltida riddare, så som de framställs i ovanstående narrativ från 1300-talet. Bergqvist menar att dessa, mer eller mindre, fiktiva hjältegestaltningar, förhandlade i en samtida nationell, sociohistorisk kontext, utgjorde ett medel i den aristokratiska gruppens identitetsskapande och som sådan verkade normerande för tidsperiodens uppfattningar om idealiserad manlighet och kvinnlighet. (Ur Therése Anderssons inledning, Hjältar och Hjältinnor, ss. 13-14)

    History and Chronicles in Late Medieval Iberia: Representations of Wamba in Late Medieval Narrative Histories by Aengus Ward2013In: La Corónica: a journal of medieval Spanish language and literature, ISSN 0193-3892, E-ISSN 1947-4261, Vol. 41, no 2, p. 265-270Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The book under scrutiny here is the culmination of an ambitious study. It has been the intention of Aengus Ward (Ph.D., 1995, Birmingham) to examine a large number of textual representations of the seventh-century Visigothic King Wamba in order to delve into the question of the existence of a chronicle genre in late medieval Iberia. Ward, a Senior Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the University of Birmingham, has previously published critical editions of late medieval Iberian chronicles and a number of articles on historiography, authorship, and manuscript culture. The importance of his contribution to the recent strengthening of research on medieval Iberian historiography is undeniable.

    It's A Good Life, If You're Free from Sin: The Moral and Political Sense of Chivalry in Medieval Castile2014In: Roda da Fortuna: Revista Eletrônica sobre Antiguidade e Medievo, ISSN 2014-7430, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 148-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the manner in which the virtues and vices play a part in the representation of the social order in the work of Don Juan Manuel, with a particular emphasis on the Libro del cauallero et del escudero, and in reference to the configuration of chivalry in Alfonso X’s Siete partidas (2P, Title XXI) and Ramon Llull’s Llibre de l’orde de cavalleria. I discuss how Don Juan Manuel’s representation of knighthood and chivalry differs from that of his predecessors, the moral and ethical notions inherent therein, and its relation to conceptions of social order. The discussion concerns the motivations and aims of these diverging conceptions of chivalry and how they are legitimated and justified.

    Performing Chivalric Masculinity: Morality, Restraint, and Emotional Norms in the Libro del Cavallero Zifar2018In: Affective and Emotional Economies in Medieval and Early Modern Europe / [ed] Andreea Marculescu, Charles-Louis Morand Métivier, Cham, Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, p. 227-246Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bergqvist offers an analysis of how emotional and affective behavior are portrayed in relation to masculinity in the Libro del Cavallero Zifar, the first domestic book of chivalry composed in medieval Castile around the year 1300. This literary work embodies knightly manhood and the performative aspect of lay elite masculinity. Bergqvist finds that the male ideal of the Zifar, epitomized in its eponymous hero, is characterized by emotional restraint and composure. This ideal of moderation, shared with contemporaneous wisdom literature, grounds Castilian chivalry in morality, and creates a distance from the emotionally expressive Arthurian knights of French romances. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the incentive for promoting this ideal and the influence on the narrative of Toledo as the place of composition.

    Abstract [en]

    This article offers an analysis of political language as manifested in the representation of two historical episodes in the Crónica de Castilla (c. 1300): the minorities of the Castilian kings Alfonso VIII and Enrique (Henry) I. In comparison with representations of the same events in related chronicles from the preceding period, a close examination of the discourse gives insight into the strategies deployed by the chronicler to offer an ideologically invested version of the past. Conclusions drawn from this investigation are used to discuss the battle for historiographical hegemony, in relation to the struggle for political power between the magnate class (the ricos hombres) and royal authority.

    Tears of Weakness, Tears of Love: Kings as Fathers and Sons in Medieval Spanish Prose2017In: Tears, Sighs and Laughter: Expressions of Emotions in the Middle Ages / [ed] Per Förnegård, Erika Kihlman, Mia Åkestam, Gunnel Engwall, Stockholm: Kungl. Vitterhets Historie och Antikvitets Akademien, 2017, p. 77-97Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A striking example of the paradoxical relationship between the roles of king and father can be found in the Chronicle of Alfonso X (Crónica de Alfonso X), written by Fernán Sánchez de Valladolid in the 1340s, on behalf of the ruling King Alfonso XI of Castile and León. In the midst of political turmoil and civil war raging because of a succession crisis, Alfonso is reached by false news of the death of his second son, Sancho (later IV), and is struck by grief. His counsellors, upon seeing his reaction, are mortified. In all probability this particular scene is not principally based on written evidence but a product of the chronicler’s imagination, and to understand this scene, we must consider what it was meant to convey to the intended audience of a historical discourse at court. How are we then to approach the emotions of people in the Middle Ages, when they are so far away in time, and so ephemeral? Certainly we cannot be sure to reach anything more than an assumption of what this or that person may have felt in a particular situation. Nevertheless, the attitudes held towards emotive expressions and the ways in which they were interpreted are accessible to us. The shedding of tears is a constant human gesture, while its signification and cultural relevance are not. The meanings attributed to crying men and women vary according to each historical situation, with each cultural context or emotional community (to use a phrase coined by Barbara Rosenwein). As historians we need to be sensitive to the particular context in which emotional expressions were constructed. This article examines crying, the emotions connected thereto, and the portrayal of kings as fathers and sons in thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Spanish prose, in varying literary genres. The aim is to offer some reflections on the attitudes taken towards lachrymose behaviour, and to reach some insight into the distinction between the public and the private, the political and the emotional life in said context.

    The Vindication of Sancho II in the Crónica de Castilla: Political Identity and Historiographical Reinvention in Medieval Castilian Chronicles2018In: The Medieval Chronicle, ISSN 1567-2336, E-ISSN 1879-5927, Vol. 11, p. 64-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first part of the post-Alfonsine Crónica de Castilla (c. 1300) is partly a vindication of the reputation of Sancho II, the king who is known to have initiated the fratricidal wars after the death of Fernando I in 1065. This article demonstrates how this is a direct consequence of the political identity constructed and disseminated within this utterly Castilian chronicle, and probably a response to certain specific historical and political circumstances in the final years of the thirteenth century. The article argues the need to view changes in the historiographical genre during this period, including those that transformed history writing towards a more 'literary' mode, as relevant to the ideological views and projects of the instigators of chronicle writing. Finally, it questions current views of the Crónica de Castilla as an example of aristocratic historiography.

    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.
