Influxo da lírica provenzal na poesía europea medieval

María X. Rodríguez Valcárcel

Os trobadores e xograres occitanos frecuentaron directamente as cortes hispánicas, italianas, inglesas e alemás de forma asidua despois do primeiro decenio do século XIII a consecuencia da diáspora provocada pola cruzada contra os albixenses. Este feito debeu contribuír a difundir os seus modelos poéticos e poría as bases para a formación das escolas nacionais dos troveri, dos Minnesänger, dos galego-portugueses e dos sicilianos.

Influence of the Provençal lyrics from Occitania on Medieval European poetry

María X. Rodríguez Valcárcel

The Occitan troubadours were frequent visitors to the Spanish, English and German courts after the first decade of the 13th century as a result of the Diaspora which was caused by the Albigensian Crusade. In that way, their poetic models spread and laid the basis of National Schools as the troveri, Minnesänger, the Galician-Portuguese and the Sicilians.
