Summary, etc.: Set in England during Richard I's reign, Sir Walter Scott's fanciful, vivid reinterpretation of medieval life is a successful blend of fact, myth and romance. Wilfred of Ivanhoe earns his father's disapproval by falling in love with Rowena, his father's ward. Then he serves with Richard I during the Crusades, while the King's brother attempts to take the throne in Richard's absence. When the King and Ivanhoe return, a series of adventures take place against the backdrop of a tournament of the Knights Templar. Ivanhoe catches the eye of Rebecca, a beautiful and courageous Jewess; he is taken prisoner, along with his father and hers, and Rowena as well; and they rely upon one Locksley (Robin Hood) and his band of outlaws to set them free. When Rebecca is subsequently charged with witchcraft, she asks Ivanhoe to champion her in a trial by combat...but have his affections shifted, or does he still love Rowena?
