Peering behind the Classical Gloss: Identifying Vernacular Sources and Analogues of the so-called ‘Furies’ in Lantfred’s Translatio et miracula S. Swithuni

Lacey, E. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

An examination of the so-called 'Furies' in a late Anglo-Saxon medieval source, which I argue to be reflexes of the Anglo-Saxon 'waelcyrian' - the counterpart of the Old Norse 'valkyrie' - which is otherwise only fleetingly noted in Anglo-Saxon sources.
