Abstract

The purpose of the present article is to sketch the tradition of dance exempla, and to comment on the image of dance promoted by these narratives in the society of the time. Inevitably, the most frequent element is a monastic-penitential condemnation of worldly enjoyment. However different connotations are sometimes introduced; and the means by which the narrative patterns are used to elicit condemnation are often significant in themselves.
