William, archbishop of Tyre from 1175 to c.1184, was a churchman, royal servant and scholar who lived in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Born in Jerusalem around 1130, he studied in western Europe for almost twenty years until 1165, when he returned to the East to begin his career in public life. He left to posterity a monumental history in which he described the events of the First Crusade (1095–9) and recorded the fortunes of the western rulers of the states subsequently founded in Syria and the Holy Land down to his own day. The value of his work as an example of twelfth-century historiography and as a source of information for the events described has long been recognized. In this study the authors consider William as a public figure and historian, and examine the influences which bore upon his writing and the way in which he fashioned his material. They then go on to examine what he had to say about certain topics - the monarchy in Jerusalem, the Church, the papacy, the Byzantine empire and the Crusade - and why he wrote as he did.

Review:

Review of the hardback: '... a useful and readable book, which provides a sound discussion of the background to the composition of William's chronicle and which brings out some of the more significant aspects of his outlook as a historian.' The Journal of Ecclesiastical History

Review of the hardback: 'As an introduction to William's Historia this study is admirable: cleanly presented, coherently argued, and clearly organized.' The American Historical Review

Review of the hardback: '... the first full analysis in English of William as a historian ... a welcome and stimulating contribution to the debate.' History

Book Description:

In this study, first published in 1988, the authors offer the first full-scale study of William of Tyre as a historian. They examine the influences which fashioned his material, and examine what he had to say about certain topics - the monarchy in Jerusalem, the Church, the papacy, the Byzantine empire and the Crusade - and why he wrote as he did.
