Although Richard Johnson's chivalric romance "The Seven Champions of Christendom" is little known today, it was widely read for over three centuries after its first appearance in print in the 1590s, influencing the work of English writers from John Bunyan to G.K. Chesterton and profoundly affecting the representation of St George, England's patron saint, in folklore and popular culture. In this volume, Jennifer Fellows offers a scholarly edition of the work. The text is based on the original printings of Parts I and II of the romance and is accompanied by explanatory notes and by an extensive introduction, which places the work in its literary-historical context, traces its evolution through the centuries and presents what little is known of its author's life.
