Vulgate cycle, group of Arthurian romances in French prose, dating roughly to 1210–30. Traditionally attributed to Walter Map, a clerk for King Henry II, the cycle is now thought to have been written by a group of Cistercian monks. It comprises L’Estoire del Saint Graal, a Merlin based on Robert de Boron’s version, and the “Prose Lancelot” (itself a compilation of three romances—the Lancelot proper, the Queste del Saint Graal, and Mort Artu).
