The Medieval Book Club is meeting during Hilary Term 2018 to look at Medieval Creatures. This week is on legend - Chrétien de Troyes, Yvain or The Knight of the Lion.

Medieval Book Club is a weekly gathering of students in which medieval texts are read and discussed, offering sanctuary from 'dreary modern books.' Our inaugural theme will be Medieval Creatures and we will read a range of texts in translation from bestiaries to fables and philosophy to poems.
