The thirteenth-century writer who called himself “Chardri” (perhaps an anagram of “Richard”) wrote two saints’ lives, the Set dormanz (The Seven Sleepers) and Vie de saint Josaphaz (The Life of St Josaphaz) and a disputation between a young man and an old one, Le Petit Plet (The Little Debate). All three, much praised by scholars as examples of unpretentious piety, youthfulness, charm and humor, are among the most attractive and accessible works in the extant corpus of French works written in medieval England.
