In his own words, without partisan bias or self-glorification, Robert of Clari recorded his observations of the Fourth Crusade as an eyewitness and participant caught up by events rather than making them.

Self and society in Medieval France : the memoirs of Abbot Guibert of Nogent (1064?-c. 1125) by Guibert( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author gives a unique picture of life and northwestern France at the turn of the twelfth century. He shows not only the glories but also the tensions of this transitional age, which gave birth to the reform of the Church, to new intellectual and spiritual movements, and to far-reaching social and economic developments, but which at the same time saw growing resistance to the established authority of the Church and feudal aristocracy, the turbulence of the rising urban classes, and the first stirrings of doubt with regard to many traditional beliefs.

Las mocedades de Rodrigo = The youthful deeds of Rodrigo, the Cid by Matt Bailey( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most famous Castilian in history, Rodrigo Diaz - also knows as 'the Cid' - lived in the second half of the eleventh century and distinguished himself during the conquest of the Muslim kingdom of Valencia. The epic poem Las Mocedades de Rodrigo (The Youthful Deeds of Rodrigo) is a fictional account of the young Rodrigo's passage from impetuous initiate to menacing force of nature, and, finally, to ally and servitor of his king. Written around 1300, the poem garnered a significant reputation in its native Spain and is still widely read today. Despite its popularity, an English translation has never been published." "This bilingual edition offers both the Old Spanish version of Las Mocedades as well as the first English translation of the epic poem. In his introduction, Matthew Bailey examines the text as a compilation of oral narratives passed down from speakers to scribes. Situating it fully within the tradition of Spanish epic poetry, Bailey goes on to review the poem's critical reception, explains the hybrid nature of the narrative, and looks at the origins of the hero himself. The translation includes explanatory notes to help the contemporary English-language reader understand the social and political circumstances surrounding the poem. For those interested in the poetry of medieval Spain, the epic tradition, or for anyone looking for a good adventure story, Las Mocedades de Rodrigo will be essential reading."--Jacket
Andrew of Longjumeau( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew of Longjumeau led one of several missions (1245-1247) sent to the Mongol leaders by Pope Innocent IV. He set out from Lyon in the spring of 1245 and travelled through Syria and Persia delivering his papal correspondence near Tabriz. Andrew made a second mission to the Mongols (1249-1251) as an ambassador of the French King, Louis IX. This party set out from Cyprus in January 1249 reaching the port of Antioch in Syria and then proceeding through Persia to the Mongol court. On his return Andrew made his report to the French King at Caesarea in Palestine in 1251. See details in the writings of William of Rubruck
