Chapter Summary

In conclusion, the translator's omission of many passages of William of Tyre's Latin Historia relating to ecclesiastical and classical material would suggest that he was writing primarily for a lay audience. The translator himself is likely to have been a cleric. Aside from his ability to make the translation accurately from Latin, he seems to have had a relation to the Augustinian canons. The alterations are found in all the early manuscripts that parallel the Latin most closely and would therefore appear to have been the work of the translator. There are a number of significant variants that were introduced into the manuscript tradition after the original translation. The remainder of this book explores the development of the manuscript tradition for the Eracles text through an examination of sample chapters that an initial enquiry showed to contain significant variant readings.

Keywords: Augustinian canons; Eracles text; manuscript tradition; William of Tyre's Latin Historia
