Presentations & Publications on Gilbert Hay’s Prose
The prose works of Sir Gilbert Hay, extant in a single manuscript (National Library of Scotland, Acc. 9253, ca. 1490), have been the focus of my research since my work on Hay’s Buke of the Ordre of Knychthede in my PhD dissertation at the University of Notre Dame, completed in 1987.
