A study of the translations of Judges 16-18 into Old French verse and prose from the twelfth to the thirteenth centuries, as well as a comparison with musical versions on the same narrative. The book examines the interpretations of Samson and of his relationship with Delilah up to the present day, then addresses the visual arts (ch.1), poetry and music (ch.2), prose translation (ch.3) and 14th-c. descriptions and illustrations of the narrative in psalters.
