Chapter Summary

Walter is known only from his work, The Antiochene wars, where he refers to himself as 'the author Walter' and 'I myself, Walter the Chancellor'. This chapter presents the work Bella Antiochena, 'The Antiochene wars' on Christian-Muslim relations. The Bella Antiochena occupies 54 pages in its modern edition (Hagenmeyer), and 94 in translation (Asbridge and Edgington). It is an account of two wars waged by the Latin Christians against the Turks in northern Syria: Book 1 covers the war of 1115, in which Count Roger of Antioch defeated Bursuq ibn Bursuq of Hamadan; Book 2 describes the defence of Antioch against the forces of Il-Ghazi ibn Artuq of Mardin in 1119, in which Roger was killed in the battle of the Field of Blood, King Baldwin II of Jerusalem's subsequent arrival, and the second battle of Tall Danith.
