The Chanson d'Antioche : an old French account of the First Crusade by Richard( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Old-French Chanson d'Antioche has long intrigued historians and literary scholars. Unusually among epic poems, it follows closely a well documented historical event – the First Crusade – and appears to include substantial and genuine historical content. At one time it was believed to be based on an account by an eye-witness, 'Richard the Pilgrim'. Carol Sweetenham and Susan Edgington have combined forces to investigate such claims, and their findings are set out in a comprehensive introduction which, firstly, examines the textual history of the poem from its possible oral beginnings through several re-workings to its present form, achieved early in the thirteenth century. A second chapter assesses the Chanson's value as a source for the crusade, and a third considers its status as a literary text. A complete prose translation follows, the first in English and based on the definitive edition. The Chanson is revealed as a lively narrative, with tales of chivalry, villainy, and even episodes of humour. There are extensive footnotes to the translation, and an appendix provides supplementary material from a different manuscript tradition. There is also a cast list of heroes and villains with biographical information for the 'real' ones and literary analogues for the fictional characters"--
Gendering the crusades( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the popular image of the Crusades may suggest that they were solely the domain of male clerics and soldiers, there is extensive edidence to prove that this was not the case. While a handful of academic articles have hinted at this issue in the past, [tghis book] is the first substantial exploration of this contemporarily neglected topic. This ... collection provides both innovative readings of well-known texts and examinations of new source materials, and discusses a wide range of subjects, from the medieval construction of gender to the military of women in the Crusades. Other essays consider questions of masculinity, the role of female saints and religious figures in the Crusades, and the relationship of Crusaders to their families. ..."--Back cover
Historia Ierosolimitana = History of the journey to Jerusalem by Albert of Aachen( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Historia Ierosolimitana, attributed to Albert of Aachen, is the most complete, the most detailed and the most colourful of the contemporary narratives of the First Crusade and the careers of the first generation of Latin settlers in Outremer from 1095-1119. It comprises twelve books, the first six telling the story of the First Crusade through to the capture of Jerusalem in 1099 and its aftermath, and the final six describing the internal and external politics of the crusader states during the first two decades of settlement. Largely neglected by crusades scholarship, this modern edition and translation allows it to be studied alongside better known accounts." "Prepared from a critical study of all the extant manuscripts, this edition in the Oxford Medieval Texts series illuminates previously disregarded aspects of crusade and settlement in the first decades of the twelfth century. The definitive Latin account is accompanied by a modern English translation on facing pages, and the text is supported with an authoritative introduction, extensive historical notes, and critical study of the work."--BOOK JACKET
Walter the Chancellor's the Antiochene Wars by Thomas S Asbridge( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of Walter the Chancellor’s account of the wars of the Antiochenes against the Muslims in the early twelfth century is a vivid first-hand account of a dramatic yet less well-known period in the history of the northern Crusader states, and an important balance to the more usual focus on Jerusalem. As a highly-placed Antiochene official, Walter was able to write the most authoritative account of the principality's fortunes and internal workings, and his book also sheds light on the relationship between Latin settlement in the Levant and contemporary Western perceptions of Islam and Eastern Christianity. Here it has for the first time been translated into English (from the Latin edition of H. Hagenmeyer). It is prefaced by a substantial introduction, discussing the author and his work in the context of the history and historiography of the Latin settlement, and is followed by a selection of comparative sources. Walter the Chancellor’s history will be of interest both to students of the Crusades and to a wider readership for its perspective on life in a medieval frontier society
The first crusade : the capture of Jerusalem in AD 1099 by Susan Edgington( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the story of the First Crusade that established the Christian kingdom of Jerusalem
Jerusalem the Golden : the origins and impact of the First Crusade( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection brings together new work by an international cast of distinguished scholars, who explore areas as diverse as the military and ecclesiastical aspects of the First Crusade; its representation in contemporary sculpture; and the way it has been portrayed in modern fiction and film. Further contributions analyse and compare primary sources and historiography, and yet others consider the crusade in its Mediterranean context, which is sometimes overlooked. These definitive studies of established areas of research are augmented by the ground-breaking work of a number of early-career academics who are working in relatively new areas: the 'emotional language' used in the narrative sources; the memorialization of the crusades; and the use of literary sources for crusade studies: notably there are complementary papers on the heroes and villains depicted in the Old French poetic accounts of the First Crusade. In these twenty-one essays every historian and interested reader of medieval history will find illumination and food for thought
Albert of Aachen's history of the journey to Jerusalem by Albert d'Aix( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. Albert of Aachen's History of the Journey to Jerusalem presents the story of the First Crusade (1095-1099) and the early history of the crusader states (1099-1119). Volume 1, The First Crusade, is a long and richly detailed account of events well known from the reports of participants, but told from a strikingly different perspective. His History therefore offers a counter-balance, and sometimes a corrective, to the established view. Volume 2, The Early History of the Latin States, provides a surprising level of detail about the reign of King Baldwin I (1100-1118), especially its earlier years and the crusading expeditions of 1101. Where it can be tested against other narratives, including Arabic and Greek sources, it proves to be worthy of both trust and respect. Susan B. Edgington's English translation has been widely praised, following its first publication in the Oxford Medieval Texts series, and is here presented with a new introduction and updated notes and bibliography

Baldwin I of Jerusalem, 1100-1118 by Susan Edgington( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Baldwin of Boulogne was born the youngest of three sons and marked out for a clerical career, yet in turn he became a First Crusader, first Latin count of Edessa and the founder of the Latin kingdom of Jerusalem. Nevertheless, remarkably, he has never been the subject of a full-length biography. This study examines in detail the stages of Baldwin's career, returning to the contemporary evidence to discover the qualities that enabled him not only to succeed his brother as ruler in 1100 but to maintain and expand the new kingdom of Jerusalem through the next eighteen years in the face of aggression from Muslim enemies and rivalry from fellow crusaders"--

Albert of Aachen's History of the journey to Jerusalem by Albert( )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert of Aachen's History of the Journey to Jerusalem presents the story of the First Crusade (1095-1099) and the first generation of Latin settlers in the Levant (1099-1119). Volume 2, The Early History of the Latin States, provides a surprising level of detail about the reign of King Baldwin I (1100-1118), especially its earlier years and the crusading expeditions of 1101. It offers much more information than the only other substantial Latin account of the same events, by Fulcher of Chartres, and where it can be tested against other narratives, including Arabic and Greek sources, it proves to be worthy of both trust and respect. Susan B. Edgington's English translation has been widely praised, following its first publication in the Oxford Medieval Texts series, and is here presented with a new introduction and updated notes and bibliography
