The lives of the women of the Komnenian house under Manuel I, as seen in the poems of Mangeneios Prodromos

A Message from Michael Jeffreys: “This week’s homework: please read the translation (at least) of this poem. It looks like a middle-aged poet gazing at a ten-year-old princess in her party dress and checking her dating potential. The seminar will show (among other things) that the cultural situation is more complex.”
