Aims and Scope
The Sigenot poem, transmitted in manuscripts and printed until the 17th century, tells of Dietrich von Bern’s capture by the giant Sigenot and his liberation by Hildebrand. This new edition, which closely follows the transmitted materials, presents two versions of the fantastical Dietrich poem: a short version (the “elder Sigenot”) and a more comprehensive version (the “younger Sigenot”), along with an alternative rendering of the latter.
