Chapter Summary

In the fifty or so years between the making of the Moissac manuscript and the next group of manuscripts with scenes of the fall much had changed, with dramatic events such as the investiture contest, the crusades and attacks on Jews highlighting the changing attitudes towards God, sin and redemption. The late eleventh and first half of the twelfth century is a time of complexities, and perhaps even more than usual, contradictory trends. There are two references to the battle of Antioch in 1089 at which the saints George and Demetrius were said to have appeared. One of these is the wall-painting of Saint-Julian de Poncé, which may depict this battle. The second of these references is to be found in a psalter made at St. Bertin at the end of the twelfth century, thus straining the term ‘contemporary.’.

Keywords: battle of Antioch; God; Moissac manuscript; sin
