Untitled[edit]

This is an important page, but it contains inaccuracies. For example, Micha's 8 volumes do not contain the cycle of 5 romances, but only the Lancelot Proper (3rd of the 5). And Lacy's volumes, listed as critical editions, are instead translations. Njl2 11:27, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

This does need a lot of work, sadly, over the whole spectrum. But while the NJL (hmm...:) ) translation should perhaps not be called a "scholarly edition", I'd like to note it's acceptible to use as a reference. It's the best English version I know of, and certainly the most comprehensive.--Cúchullain t/c 18:52, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
Well, the recent Pléiade edition is the complete cycle, yet someone has seen fit to remove it from the bibliography.

Does anyone know what language the Vulgate Cycle was originally written in? (the Post-Vulgate Cycle page mentions French; is that true for the Vulgate as well?) VisibleInk 19:11, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

French. I can't believe it didn't say that before, thanks for pointing it out!--Cúchullain t/c 20:57, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Sorry to dredge up ancient history, but which French? Old French or Middle French (since ModFr wasn't yet in existence)? Anyone out there know? Drydic guy (talk) 15:47, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
It's Old French.--Cúchullain t/c 18:30, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
