Welcome to the Charrette Project!

Ms. Garrett 125 [Princeton University Library], folio 22r

The Charrette is a complex, scholarly, multi-media electronic archive of Chrétien de Troyes's Le Chevalier de la Charrette (Lancelot, ca. 1180), which itself does not seek to interpret the romance, nor does it dictate to scholars how they should conduct their research. It makes available a critical edition, to which a fully searchable database of rhetorico-poetic figures and grammatical data will shortly be added, and the entire manuscript tradition (eight manuscripts) in images and diplomatic transcriptions. These materials are placed at the disposal of students and scholars for their personal use.

The reproduction and/or distribution (electronic or otherwise) of any of the materials on this site are forbidden without the express written permission of the Charrette Project editors and the owners of the manuscript material herein included. Last update: September 2006.
