WHO’S WHO IN THIS WEIRD AND WONDERFUL WORLD

This is a running list (alphabetical by author, approximately) of works, people, and places referred to in passing in class. And some more who may be tangential. Links go to Wikipedia. It’s intended for quick reference: some names will return, some will be added along the way, and by the end of term this will constitute a kind of Medieval virtual reference-shelf and a Medievalist mini-Wikipedia.

Please add comments if I’ve missed anything, anyone, or any place I referred to in class…
