Les jeunes filles dans le roman byzantin du XIIe siècle

Abstract : Although strongly influenced by the typology of the ancient novel, the way girls are portrayed in twelfth-century works is evidence of specifically Byzantine concerns. The importance given to the heroines' virtue reflects the harshness of a patriarchal society. But the Byzantine novelists like to play with norms and subtly mix eroticism with moral considerations – which could be a way of playfully criticizing the widening gap between ideology and practice that is perceptible in the changing society of the Comnenian period.
