Richard Utz recently published "Medieval Philology and Nationalism: The British and German Editors of Thomas of Erceldoune" in Florilegium 23.2 (2006 ), 27-45, the journal of the Canadian Society of Medievalists. The essay attempts to shed light on the national and regional motivations welling up in the English, German, Scottish, and North American reception history of the late medieval lai/ballad/romance/prophecy Thomas of Erceldoune.
