Abstract

The Arthurian texts of both Vulgate and Post Vulgate cycles have many oriental references that constitute a matter of its own in the pagan context of the works. Places and characters from a mysterious eastern « other world » compete with the magical Celtic world, playing an important role in the structure of the narratives.
