This volume discusses medieval volgarizzamenti of historical, religious, and profane writings. All fourteen studies presented here recognise the fact that in the late Middle Ages, these texts were an important meeting point for elitist and popular culture which mutually stimulated each other. At the same time, different worlds of knowledge came together as history, mythology, hagiography, and biblical narration were considered to form one entity.
