* three 12th-century kings and their successors in some Middle English chronicles

* culture and dispute in Dialogus de Scaccario

* age, argument, and allegory in The Parlement of the Thre Ages

* reinterpreting the later life of Isabelle of France (c.1296-1358)

* the heterodoxy of Sir John Clanvowe's The Two Ways
