The author demonstrates a text-based relationship between the open-minded approach to mysticism that characterised the Middle Ages from the late 12th century until the mid-14th century and the poetry of troubadours. Focusing on issues of literary history he demonstrates that mysticism is not something utterly distant and mysterious in literary works, but a firm belief that every instant of a person's life took place in the sight of God. The author took this wider perspective to prove that some troubadour poems undoubtedly show the presence of mysticism in such a complex sense as presented in the book. Besides literary essays the book includes two supplementary chapters. One of them deals with the moral concept of most important arts of poetryof the era. The other essay attempts to assess the significance of non-French works on the literary scene of the Middles Ages-given the fact that Saint Bernard and his disciples were contemporaries of the troubadours. Imre Gábor Majorossy has a PhD in the History of Old French Literature. He works at the Department of French Language and Literature of Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Hungary. His main research areas are religious trends in troubadour poetry, its origins and varieties, as well as literary representations of Christian thoughts in Occitan short stories and novels.
