Abstract

This thesis studies the use of narrative, as exemplified by the theories of Hayden White, in the histories of the Crusades that have been written by French authors. It looks at three primary authors: William of Tyre, Louis Maimbourg, and J.J. Lemoine, as products of their time and authors of a history.
