This collective volume documents the German reception of the last novella of Boccaccio's Decameron. It is about Griselda, a poor daughter of a peasant, whom the Marquis Gualtieri marries and subsequently repudiates and humiliates in an inhumane way. Finally, after being subjected to numerous trials which she endures patiently, she is reinstated as wife and marchioness. The book explores the German reception of the Griselda figuration as gender paradigm from the Middle Ages up to the Modern Age in a European context.
