French-language writings
from Italy by Type
 
 

Itailian writers used the French language to write many different types of works. Romances were the most commom type of text created and copied in Italy, but this did not represent the entire scope of French literary production.

Below are works from the French of Italy corpus listed by genre, although genre distinctions can also be problematic. We have largely followed the genre distinctions first put forth for the corpus of Anglo-Norman writings:

History

Romance
Lyric
Lais and Fabilaux
Satirical, Social, Moral
Proverbs
Grammar and Glosses
Science and Technology
Medicine
Biblical
Apocrphal
Hagiography
Homiletic
Devotional
