From the blurb: "This scholarly work is the first detailed study to be made of the iconography of Roland, the hero of the Chanson de Roland. best known literary epic of the Middle Ages, as he is depicted in sculpture, wall painting, the minor arts and above all, manuscript illumination. It covers the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries in France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Germany, and reveals the evolution of Roland from a stock figure in ecclesiastical art, the conqueror of the heathen, through sainthood at Chartres, into an individualized chivalric hero, and his decline in later manuscripts and woodcuts into a 'type'.
