Description
 
Raymond D’Aguilers, chaplain of Count Raymond IV of Toulouse, wrote an eyewitness account of the crusades entitled “Historia Francorum qui ceperunt Iherusalem.” His 12th-cent. history has influenced later historians in their accounts of the First Crusade and has led to many misinterpretations. This translation offers a clearer understanding of the crusades. The free translation catches the spirit of the chaplain and reveals the suffering and misgivings of the clerics who journeyed to Jerusalem. Explains the author’s use of visions and Biblical material and his resort to ecclesiastical fiction. “Offers the specialist as well as the general public a vivid account of the crusaders’ journey to Jerusalem and the capture of the Holy Sepulchre in 1099.” Maps. (reprint ed.)
