Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the book Passio Thiemonis Archiepiscopi, Passio beati Thiemonis, juvanensis archiepiscopi, 'Martyrdom of Archbishop Thiemo'. Three hagiographical texts narrate the martyrdom of Archbishop Thiemo of Salzburg, who died in the crusade of 1101. This text presents a vivid example, in the wake of the First Crusade, of the stereotypical image of Saracens as pagan idolaters. Roughly contemporary with the Chanson de Roland, it offers a similarly colorful and polemical image of perverted devotion to idols. The text reflects a certain naïve optimism that the blood of the martyrs and fresh miracles can convert the pagan masses to Christianity.
