This session deals with the problem of the scholarly narrative of the medieval origins of vernacular literatures. The aim is to discuss critically traditional approaches of European philologies and literary sciences and look for new theoretical and methodological frames in which the medieval vernacular literatures could be investigated beyond the boundaries of nationally defined historiographical and philological narratives. The papers in this session describe some problems of selected national philologies and discuss their impact on the current state of the art.
