Abstract

All historians interested in the history of the Crusades and the Latin East in the late 12th and 13th centuries make use of these narratives. Thanks to a grant from the AHRC we are now engaged in producing a new critical edition of them, and our work has clarified much of the confusion surrounding them and overturned many long-held assumptions.
