Hello,

I'm currently doing a research study about the french "roman de Florimont" ; do you know if it's possible to find an on line or edited version of it?
Thank you by advance!

I have searched the Internet and several library catalogues. The French National Library (www.bnf.fr) has a big digital library (gallica.bnf.fr). There are also medieval romances, but, unfortunately, not "Roman de Florimont"). The only version of "Roman de Florimont" practically available seems to be the following edition: Aimon de Varennes, "Florimont: ein altfranzösischer Abenteuerroman; zum ersten Male mit Einleitung, Anmerkungen, Namenverzeichnis und Glossar unter Benutzung der von Alfred Risop gesammelten handschriftlichen Materialen herausgegeben von Alfons Hilka". The book has been published in Göttingen 1932. The text is in French; only the introduction is in German. Several libraries in Europe own the book, so it should be possible to order it through your local library as an interlibrary loan.
