    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The study explores bible epic narratives as a narrative process across media and genres and investigates the medieval reception of the Transitus Mariae B by Pseudo-Melito of Sardis. Interdiscursive analytic case studies uncover discursive inferences in textual and pictorial sources, Assumptionist argumentation structures, and courtly adaptations of the apocryphal material that fell between scholarship and popular practices of piety.
