Abstract

Has the Middle Ages invented glo-balization or revealed a clear consciousness of globality? On the other hand, may this anachronistic notion prove to be an appro-priate and productive operative and analyti-cal concept for rethinking medieval literature beyond its territorial and linguistic bounda-ries and the epistemological view of the wor-ld imposed by a (neo)positivist conception of the history of literature? Mapping the medie-val literature in a global perspective implies a methodological repositioning and a pro-cess of deterritorialization of the concepts themselves that leads us to reinvest motives, forms, structuring notions (from the chivalric queste to the concept of romance as transla-tio, passing through the status of the marve-lous) with new meanings and, consequently, new cultural and poetic implications.
