Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the book Chanson d'Antioche, 'The Song of Antioch' (though it is seldom referred to as such) on Christian-Muslim relations. The Chanson d'Antioche forms part of a trilogy with two other texts: the Chanson de Jerusalem, which takes the Crusaders through the fall of Jerusalem to the battle of Ascalon; and the Chanson des Chetifs, a fantasy compilation of three tales loosely linked to the First Crusade, which serves as a bridge between the two. The text is part of a wider complex of chansons de geste known as the Old French Crusade Cycle, which starts with the legends surrounding the ancestry of Godfrey of Bouillon and concludes with the fall of Acre. The Antioche is a chanson de geste in which Saracens exist only as adversaries of the crusaders.
