Ivanhoe is set in 12th-century England , with colourful descriptions of a tournament, outlaws, a witch trial and divisions between Jews and Christians.
In June Scott was still suffering from the severe stomach pains that had forced him to dictate the last part of The Bride of Lammermoor and most of A Legend of the Wars of Montrose , finishing at the end of May.
But by the beginning of July at the latest he had started dictating his new novel Ivanhoe , again with John Ballantyne and William Laidlaw as amanuenses.
He was able to take up the pen himself for the second half of the novel and completed it in early November. Ivanhoe , bearing the date , was published by Archibald Constable in Edinburgh on 20 December and issued in London on the 29th.
As with all of the Waverley novels before publication was anonymous. Ivanhoe is the story of one of the remaining Anglo-Saxon noble families at a time when the nobility in England was overwhelmingly Norman.
It follows the Saxon protagonist, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe, who is out of favour with his father for his allegiance to the Norman king Richard the Lionheart.
The story is set in , after the failure of the Third Crusade , when many of the Crusaders were still returning to their homes in Europe.
King Richard, who had been captured by Leopold of Austria on his return journey to England, was believed to still be in captivity. Ivanhoe accompanies King Richard on the Crusades , where he is said to have played a notable role in the Siege of Acre ; and tends to Louis of Thuringia, who suffers from malaria.
The book opens with a scene of Norman knights and prelates seeking the hospitality of Cedric. They are guided there by a pilgrim , known at that time as a palmer.
Isaac of York offers to repay his debt to the palmer with a suit of armour and a war horse to participate in the tournament at Ashby-de-la-Zouch Castle, on his inference that the palmer was secretly a knight.
The palmer is taken by surprise, but accepts the offer. The tournament is presided over by Prince John. On the first day of the tournament, a bout of individual jousting , a mysterious knight, identifying himself only as "Desdichado" described in the book as Spanish, taken by the Saxons to mean Disinherited , defeats Bois-Guilbert.
He bestows this honour upon the Lady Rowena. On the second day, at a melee , Desdichado is the leader of one party, opposed by his former adversaries.
When forced to unmask himself to receive his coronet the sign of championship , Desdichado is identified as Wilfred of Ivanhoe, returned from the Crusades.
This causes much consternation to Prince John and his court who now fear the imminent return of King Richard.
Ivanhoe is severely wounded in the competition yet his father does not move quickly to tend to him. Instead, Rebecca, a skilled healer , tends to him while they are lodged near the tournament and then convinces her father to take Ivanhoe with them to their home in York, when he is fit for that trip.
The conclusion of the tournament includes feats of archery by Locksley, such as splitting a willow reed with his arrow.

Critics of the novel have treated it as a romance intended mainly to entertain boys. Scott treats themes similar to those of some of his earlier novels, like Rob Roy and The Heart of Midlothian , examining the conflict between heroic ideals and modern society.
In the latter novels, industrial society becomes the centre of this conflict as the backward Scottish nationalists and the "advanced" English have to arise from chaos to create unity.
Similarly, the Normans in Ivanhoe , who represent a more sophisticated culture, and the Saxons, who are poor, disenfranchised, and resentful of Norman rule, band together and begin to mould themselves into one people.
The conflict between the Saxons and Normans focuses on the losses both groups must experience before they can be reconciled and thus forge a united England.
The particular loss is in the extremes of their own cultural values, which must be disavowed in order for the society to function.
