  "abstract": "<p><a href=\"\">ONAMA Corpus data</a></p>\n\n<p>These narratives essentially revolve around two thematic focuses, which are often present in medieval literature and visual art. These are, on the one hand, the&nbsp;<em>Story of Jason and the Argonauts with the Quest for the Golden Fleece</em>, anchored in the context of the Trojan War; and on the other hand, narratives about&nbsp;<em>Fighting with or Taming wild Animals</em>.</p>\n\n<p>The data on the Argonaut saga are based on the pictorial realisations in&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Codex 2773</a>&nbsp;of the Austrian National Library, a German-language adaptation of Guido de Columnis&nbsp;<em>Historia destructionis Troiae</em>&nbsp;with opulent miniatures by Martinus Opifex (c. 1450), and on the textual realisations in two romances, the&nbsp;<em>Liet von Troye</em>&nbsp;by Herbort von Fritzl&acirc;r (c. 1190) and&nbsp;<em>Der Trojanische Krieg</em>&nbsp;by Konrad von W&uuml;rzburg (c. 1280).</p>\n\n<p>The thematic area&nbsp;<em>Fighting with or Taming wild Animals</em>&nbsp;offers exciting, multifaceted realisations that span across texts from MHDBDB and images from REALonline. In connection with this theme are a number of recorded narratives that go beyond medieval literature and are taken from J.R.R. Tolkien&#39;s&nbsp;<em>The Hobbit</em>, concerning the dragon Smaug.</p>",
