GERMAN STUDIES: MEDIEVAL LITERATURE German Studies MEDIEVAL LITERATURE By DAVID A. WELLs,ProfissorofGerman at The Queen's University of Belfost I. GENERAL The second volume of Lexikon des Mittelalters, Munich, Artemis, commences with fascicles 1-2, which occupy 448 columns and cover headings from Bettlerwesen to Bordeaux. Prominent among numerous interesting articles is the lengthy section on Bibel which includes a well structured and concisely informative account of many aspects of the understanding and exegesis of the Bible in the Middle Ages in both Eastern and Western Churches. No less important are the sections on Bibelillustration and BibelUbersetzungen, while Bibeldichtung includes a review of the medieval Ger. monuments by D. Kartschoke. Vernacular Ger. literature is also discussed by K. Grubmiiller under Bfspel and Ulrich Boner, and by V. Mertens under Bligger von Steinach. Of general importance are substantial articles on Bibliothek and Bischof and its compounds, while iconography is well represented under Bildnis and Bildprogramme, topography by Biihmen, Bologna and other places, and other aspects of medieval life - no less devoid of significance for literature and thought - by Bienen and Bier und Brauwesen.
