Abstract

Symphosius's Latin Aenigmata and the Old English Exeter Book, although known as two related collections of riddles, have not yet been analyzed from the perspective of their connected natures. This thesis seeks to bring the two collections into conversation as a means of discovering new information about the texts and using the textual differences to probe the authors' cultural contexts.
