Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the book Chronicle of Pseudo-Turpin, Historia Karoli Magni et Rotholandi on Christian-Muslim relations. The Chronicle of Pseudo-Turpin is first and foremost the work of a forger who passes himself off as Archbishop Turpin and testifies to the 14 years of expeditions that Charlemagne is supposed to have carried out in Spain, ad expugnandum gentem paganorum perfidam at the command of St James. The Chronicle of Pseudo-Turpin is original in making a connection between the figures of St James and Charlemagne, and for the first time relating the pilgrimage to the legend of the emperor, which was unfolding in chronicles, chansons de geste, and probably in stories peddled along the road to Compostela.
