University of California Press

This chapter explores the issue on the relationship of the narratives of 1096 and their conceptualization of God, humanity, and history to classical Jewish tradition. The discussion focuses on a small number of classical narratives, which are those that look at the earlier hero figures that are consistently cited in the First Crusade narratives. This chapter also includes a comparison of the narratives and the classical versions of these hero figures and their similarities and differences in substance and style.

Keywords:   relationship, narratives of 1096, God, humanity, history, classical Jewish tradition, classical narratives, hero figures
