Nine case studies of cultural or textual transformation in the medieval period are presented here. Written by some of Ireland's leading young medievalists, these essays study cultural and literary transmission over the course of eight centuries in medieval England and Ireland. Integrating perspectives from literary scholarship, philology, and cultural history, these essays both address specific moments of cultural transformation and build an overall image of the dynamic engagements of individual medieval authors with the texts and traditions they inherited.
