A behavioral ideal of French origin, gallantry is a vital concept for scholars researching the critical period around 1700. As an aesthetically determined ethic practiced by a court-influenced elite, gallant conduct was defined by the arts- and particularly by literature. That connection is the focus of this collection of cutting-edge articles. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, they investigate the tradition of gallantry beginning in the Middle Ages, its migration from France to Germany, and the continuity of its influence in the century of the Enlightenment.
