Only recently has the study of medieval literature gone beyond approaches pioneered in the nineteenth century. The contributors to this volume attack this problem using approaches that range from purely Peircean semiotic to semiotic hermeneutics and reader response. One contributor even speaks of the DOS (Disk Operating System) of certain medieval texts. This work aims at establishing new ways of discussing medieval textuality with its complexities being discussed at both textual and global levels.
