The present volume groups together fourteen articles focusing on Court usages and their literary representation, from the Middle Ages to the Baroque era. Reading the gathered studies will allow one to understand the links forged between Medieval courtesy and manners in use at Court in the Modern era. These codes of behaviour, a distinctive feature for the Aristocracy, had become an example to follow for the man in the street. By shading light on the contexts determining them in every era, this issue thus offers a kind of evolutive itinerary of Court usages that explains the transformations certain literary works underwent throughout the centuries.
