The Chanson d’Antioche: An Old French Account of the First Crusade

We were delighted to read Simon John’s review of The Chanson d’Antioche: An Old French Account of the First Crusade on the Reviews in History website.

…this volume is a landmark piece of scholarship not only in the field of the crusades but more widely in medieval history. The Chanson d’Antioche is one of the most important texts in crusade history, and a significant example of medieval vernacular literature in its own right. The publication of this translation will make the Antioche accessible to a large number of scholars across a range of disciplines.

The Chanson d’Antioche is published in Ashgate’s Crusade Texts in Translation series, and the volume is translated and introduced by Susan B. Edgington and Carol Sweetenham.
