Chapter Summary

Hugh was devoted to Abbot Rudolf and shared his enthusiasm for the church reform program that was formulated in the pontificate of Gregory VII (1073-85). Victims of the conflict between empire and papacy, known as the 'Investiture Contest', took refuge with their fellow reformer Abbot Jarento of St-Bénigne in Dijon. This chapter presents a short description of the book Chronicon Hugonis Monachi Virdunensis et Divionensis Abbatis Flaviniacensis, 'The Chronicle of Hugh of Flavigny' on Christian-Muslim Relations. The Chronicle of Hugh of Flavigny is an incarnation chronicle that purports to be a history of the world from the birth of Christ down to Hugh's own day. In terms of Christian-Muslim relations, there are two passages in Hugh's chronicle of particular importance.
