The Second Crusade as Seen by Contemporaries

  • Giles Constable (a1)


The years between 1146 and 1148 were signalized in the annals and chronicles of Medieval Europe by Christian campaigns on all fronts against the surrounding pagans and Moslems. The most important of these was directed towards the Holy Land, against the Moslems, who had recently seized Edessa. It consisted of no less than five expeditions. The two largest armies, commanded by the Emperor Conrad III and King Louis VII of France, followed the same route overland across the Balkans to Constantinople; both met with crushing defeats in Asia Minor and finally reached the Holy Land, as best they could, by land and sea. A third force, under Amadeus III of Savoy, moved down Italy, crossed from Brindisi to Durazzo, and joined the army of Louis at Constantinople late in 1147. In August of the same year a naval expedition led by Alfonso of Toulouse left the South of France and arrived in Palestine probably in the spring of 1148. At the same time, a joint Anglo-Flemish naval force sailed along the north coast of Europe, assisted the King of Portugal in the capture of Lisbon, proceeded around the peninsula early in 1148, attacked Faro, and presumably reached the Holy Land later that year. Meanwhile, in the northeast, four armies co-operated in a campaign against the pagan Wends across the river Elbe: a Danish army joined the Saxons under Henry the Lion and Archbishop Adalbero of Bremen in an attack on Dubin; another, larger, army led by Albert the Bear of Brandenburg and many other temporal and spiritual lords advanced against Demmin and Stettin; a fourth expedition, finally, under a brother of the Duke of Poland attacked from the southeast. In 1148, on the south shore of the Mediterranean, a powerful fleet under George of Antioch extended the control of Roger II of Sicily over the entire littoral from Tripoli to Tunis. In the West, four campaigns were directed against the crumbling power of the Almoravides. The Genoese in 1146 sacked Minorca and besieged Almeria. During the following year, the Emperor Alfonso VII of Castile advanced south through Andalusia and captured Almeria with the aid of a strong Genoese fleet, which in 1148 sailed north and joined the Count of Barcelona in his campaign against Tortosa. In the previous year, Alfonso Henriques of Portugal had captured Santarem and secured the assistance of the Anglo-Flemish fleet for an attack on Lisbon, which fell late in 1147.

page 213 note 1 A bibliography of the Second Crusade will appear as a part of the chapter by Virginia Berry in the forthcoming co-operative History of the Crusades. In spite of its age, the most complete account is still that of Kugler, Bernhard, Studien zur Geschichte des zweiten Kreuzzuges (Stuttgart 1866); but for the German aspects of the crusade, that of Bernhardi, Wilhelm, Konrad III. (Jahrbücher der deutschen Geschichte; 2 vols. paged consecutively, Leipzig 1883) 512-684, is fuller and more accurate. The best narrative in English is that of Steven Runciman in the second volume of his A History of the Crusades (Cambridge 1952) 247-88. In addition to the abbreviations listed at the front of this volume, the following will be used: Ann. for Annales; Bern. for Sancti Bernardi … Opera Omnia I (PL 182; Paris 1859); Chron. for Chronicon or Chronica; MGH SS for Monumenta Germaniae Historica, Scriptores (rerum Germanicarum) (Hannover 1826ff.); MGH SS. r. G. for Scriptores rerum Germanicarum in usum scholarum ex Monumentis Germaniae historicis separatim editi (Hannover 1840ff.); PU for the Papsturkunden volumes in the series published by the ‘Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen’; RHGF for the Recueil des Historiens des Gaules et de la France (ed. Bouquet, Martin; new. ed. by Delisle, Léopold; Paris 1869ff.). For his encouragement and assistance in the preparation of this article I am especially grateful to Professor Robert L. Wolff of Harvard University. I am also indebted for many valuable suggestions to Mrs. Virginia Berry, of Winnipeg, and to Professors Helen M. Cam and Herbert Bloch of Harvard.

page 213 note 2 For all references on the campaigns mentioned in this introduction, see individual discussions below. The twelfth-century sources draw no clear line between the Moslems and the heathens: they were both pagani. The heathen Slavs were even, on occasion, referred to as Saraceni, see PL 180.1385 (JL 9325) and Vincent of Prague, Ann. seu Chron. Boemorum, MGH SS 17.664.

page 213 note 3 Conrad III is known only by courtesy as Holy Roman Emperor, since he was never crowned as such. The Popes always referred to him as ‘King.’ Alfonso VII of Castile (see below) was both crowned and recognized by the Papacy as King of Kings and was commonly called ‘Emperor’ by contemporaries: on the imperial title in Spain, see Schramm, Percy, ‘Das kastilische Königtum und Kaisertum während der Reconquista,’ Festschrift für Gerhard Ritter (Tübingen 1950) 90f. Traditio of Louis at Constantinople late in 1147. In August of the same year a naval expedition led by Alfonso of Toulouse left the South of France and arrived in Palestine probably in the spring of 1148. At the same time, a joint Anglo-Flemish naval force sailed along the north coast of Europe, assisted the King of Portugal in the capture of Lisbon, proceeded around the peninsula early in 1148, attacked Faro, and presumably reached the Holy Land later that year. Meanwhile, in the northeast, four armies co-operated in a campaign against the pagan Wends across the river Elbe: a Danish army joined the Saxons under Henry the Lion and Archbishop Adalbero of Bremen in an attack on Dubin; another, larger, army led by Albert the Bear of Brandenburg and many other temporal and spiritual lords advanced against Demmin and Stettin; a fourth expedition, finally, under a brother of the Duke of Poland attacked from the southeast. In 1148, on the south shore of the Mediterranean, a powerful fleet under George of Antioch extended the control of Roger II of Sicily over the entire littoral from Tripoli to Tunis. In the West, four campaigns were directed against the crumbling power of the Almoravides. The Genoese in 1146 sacked Minorca and besieged Almeria. During the following year, the Emperor Alfonso VII of Castile advanced south through Andalusia and captured Almeria with the aid of a strong Genoese fleet, which in 1148 sailed north and joined the Count of Barcelona in his campaign against Tortosa. In the previous year, Alfonso Henriques of Portugal had captured Santarem and secured the assistance of the Anglo-Flemish fleet for an attack on Lisbon, which fell late in 1147.

page 214 note 4 I shall not consider here either William of Tyre, who was thoroughly non-Western in his attitude and also not fully contemporary, or the Greek historians Cinnamus and Nicetas, on whom see Kugler (n. 1 above) 36-43; id., Neue Analekten zur Geschichte des The Second Crusade as Seen by Contemporaries zweiten Kreuzzuges (Tübingen 1883) 29-50; and Runciman (n. 1 above) II 475-7. The Gesta Ludovici VII is now believed to have been written after 1274: see Kugler, Bernhard, Analecten (sic) zur Geschichte des zweiten Kreuzzuges (Tübingen 1878) 113, and Molinier, Auguste, Les sources de l'histoire de France II: Époque féodale, les Capétiens jusqu'en 1180 (Paris 1902) 300-1.

page 215 note 8 In certain respects the approach of this article is paralleled for the First Crusade by Paul Rousset in Les origines et les caractères de la première Croisade (Neuchâtel 1945). In his review of this work in Speculum 23 (1948) 328-31, John LaMonte accused Rousset of ‘an infatuation with words’ (329) and of trying ‘to reestablish the old thesis of the crusade as essentially a religious movement, away from which recent research has been steadily moving’ (331). ‘To assume…,’ LaMonte, said, ‘that because one finds repeated affirmations of the religious motive in contemporary literature religion was the essential cause of the crusade seems to be a rather naïve deduction’ (329). While I agree with LaMonte that Rousset tends to neglect political, social, and military factors in the motivation of the crusade, I believe that it is misleading to speak of ‘propaganda value’ and of ‘official clerical accounts’ (329) in the Middle Ages, and that to call the early twelfth century ‘a period when religiosity was at a premium’ and to compare St. Bernard to Pravda (329-30) is carrying cynicism too far.

On the expedition of Amadeus of Savoy, see Odo of Deuil, De profectione Ludovici VII in Orientem , ed. and tr. Berry, Virginia (Columbia Records of Civilization 42; New York 1948) 24, 66-8; Anonymous Chron. ad annum 1160, RHGF 12.120; Ann. Mediolanenses minores, MGH SS 18.393 and among more recent works see Guarmani, Carlo, Gl'Italiani in Terra Santa (Bologna 1872) 169; Previté Orton, C. W., The Early History of the House of Savoy (Cambridge 1912) 309-13. Odo of Deuil refers to Amadeus as the Count of Maurienne, an alternative title of the Counts of Savoy that appears frequently in contemporary sources. L'art de vérifier des dates (3rd ed. Paris 1783-7) III 614, and Molinier, Auguste, Vie de Louis le Gros par Suger (Collection de Textes pour servir à l’étude et à l’enseignement de l’Histoire; Paris 1887) 159 n. 20, err in calling him Amadeus II of Savoy, as do Mrs. Berry, in Odo of Deuil, op. cit. 78 n. 37, and Henri Waquet, in Odo of Deuil, La Croisade de Louis VII, Roi de France (Documents relatifs à l’histoire des Croisades 3; Paris 1949) 51 n. 1, in calling him Amadeus II of Maurienne.

page 217 note 10 There have recently appeared two editions of this work, by Virginia Berry and by Henri Waquet (cited in n. 9 above); these were reviewed in Speculum, respectively, by LaMonte, John, 23 (1948) 502–4, and Topping, Peter, 26 (1951) 385-7.

page 217 note 11 Topping 386; cf. Waquet (n. 9 above), introduction. It is, on the contrary, perhaps surprising that later, as Abbot of St. Denis, Odo did not play a more prominent part in the political and intellectual life of his time, cf. Berry (n. 9 above), intro. p. xvi.

page 217 note 12 Ibid. xvii.

page 217 note 13 With unblushing prejudice, Odo even attributes the aid given by the Greeks at Constantinople to their desire to lull the French into a sense of security in order to deceive them later: ibid. 68; cf. Hirsch, Richard, Studien zur Geschichte König Ludwigs VII von Frankreich (Leipzig 1892) 55–6.

page 217 note 15 One cryptic passage says that ‘parant naves maritimi cum rege navigio processuri,’ ibid. 12; but it is not clear whether this refers to the Anglo-Flemish crusaders (as Charles David assumes: De expugnatione Lyxbonensi [Columbia Records of Civilization 24; New York 1936] 12), or to the fleet of Alfonso of Toulouse, or to the ships that carried the soldiers of the Count of Savoy from Brindisi to Durazzo.

page 220 note 34 ‘Saxones vero, quia quasdam gentes spurciciis idolorum deditas vicinas habent, ad orientem proficisci abnuentes cruces itidem easdem gentes bello attemptaturi assumpserunt a nostris in hoc distantes, quod non simpliciter vestibus assutae, sed a rota subterposita in altum protendebantur,’ Gesta p. 61.

page 220 note 35 ‘… a nostris nuper Sarracenis ablata est,’ Chronica 1.26, p. 59. Since these crusaders were mostly Flemings and Englishmen, and therefore not subjects of Conrad III, the nostri presumably refers to them as brother-crusaders.

page 220 note 36 Gesta 1.65, pp. 91–4. Later in this chapter, he says: ‘Quamvis, si dicamus sanctum illum abbatem (Bernardum) spiritu Dei ad excitandos nos afflatum fuisse, sed nos ob superbiam lasciviamque nostram salubria mandata non observantes merito rerum personarumve dispendium reportasse, non sit a rationibus vel antiquis exemplis dissonum.,’ ibid. 93.

page 222 note 48 See my ‘Note’ (n. 37 above).

page 222 note 49 Cf. the same point of view from the Portuguese side in the speech of the Bishop of Porto, De exp. Lyx. 6884; see below, 246-7 and n. 178, and Cramer (n. 44 above) 55-60. See also the Translatio sancti Vincentii, in Analecta Bollandiana 1 (1882) 270-8, whose author says, ‘… visum est illis non contra Saracenos Syriae progrediendum, cum illi in Hispania sibi essent in offendiculum,’ 273. I can find no justification for Erdmann’s sceptical view of the Portuguese crusades as purely economic and political enterprises into which the natives, in order to further their own selfish ends, tried to draw crusaders destined for the Holy Land: Erdmann, Carl, ‘Der Kreuzzugsgedanke in Portugal,’ Historische Zeitschrift 141 (1929-30) 23-53. Cramer 56 n. 21 points out that, ‘Erdmann spricht zu Unrecht davon, dass « die Predigt des Bischofs (von Porto) gerade eine Rede zur Abhaltung vom Kreuzzug » sei.’ The English, German, and Portuguese sources show that on neither side was the campaign in Portugal ever considered more than a temporary break in the achievement of the ultimate purpose of the crusaders in the Holy Land, although the Bishop emphasized that it is sinful for a Christian to neglect an opportunity to assist a brother and that the campaign in Portugal is in itself a righteous war. As Cramer says, 59: ‘Wenn Bischof Peter alsdann den Kampf gegen die Mauren als gleichwertig mit der Jerusalemfahrt hinstellt, so befindet er sich keineswegs im Gegensatz zu den Urhebern der Kreuzzüge.’ See below, 258f.

page 223 note 53 This point should be emphasized in opposition to those who consider each of these campaigns as a separate crusade, such as Riant (n. 38 above) 225 n. 1, and Vasiliev, A. A., History of the Byzantine Empire (2nd English edition, Madison 1952) 419.

Cartellieri 376, and Thompson, James W., ‘The German Church and the Conversion of the Baltic Slavs,’ American Journal of Theology 20 (1916) 205–30 and 372-89, who called the crusade a ‘sinister mixture of bigotry and lust for land,’ 381.

page 225 note 63 Vincent of Prague, for instance, says: ‘Saxones potius pro auferenda eis terra, quam pro fide Christiana confirmanda tantam moverant militiam,’ MGH SS 17.663. But Vincent was a Bohemian and not unprejudiced.

page 225 note 64 Jordan, Karl, ‘Heinrich der Löwe und die ostdeutsche Kolonisation,’ Deutsches Archiv für Landes- und Volksforschung 2 (1938) 789: ‘Das Unternehmen war vor allem an der Diskrepanz gescheitert, welche sich zwischen den Forderungen der Kirche und den politischen Zielen der sächsischen Fürsten im Wendenland auftat.’ Carl Erdmann, on the contrary, emphasizes in his Die Entstehung des Kreuzzugsgedankens (Forschungen zur Kirchen- und Geistesgeschichte 6; Stuttgart 1935) 91-7, that the early campaigns against the Slavs in the East were marked by ‘das Zusammentreffen von Heidenkrieg und Heidenmission,’ 95.

(n. 6 above) 152-5. But his notices are on the whole annalistic and unconnected.

On this campaign see Schirrmacher, F. W., Geschichte von Spanien IV (Gotha 1881) 143f.; Langer, Otto, Politische Geschichte Genuas und Pisas im 12. Jahrhundert (Historische Studien, ed. Arndt, W. 7; Leipzig 1882) 23-35; Manfroni, C., Storia della Marina Italiana (400-1261) (Leghorn 1899) 207-15; Schaube, Adolf, Handelsgeschichte der Romanischen Völker des Mittelmeergebiets bis zum Ende der Kreuzzüge (Handbuch der mittelalterlichen und neueren Geschichte, edd. Below, and Meinecke, , Abt. III; Munich-Berlin 1906) 317-19; Cartellieri (n. 37 above) 420-2. The principal objection to Caffaro’s excellent account of the capture of Almeria and Tortosa is the impression it gives that this was one campaign, whereas it was in fact two campaigns, in both of which the Genoese cooperated. This is clearly seen in the treaties preserved in the Liber iuris and printed in the Codice diplomatico della Repubblica di Genova , ed. di Sant’Angelo, Cesare Imperiale (Fonti per la Storia d’Italia 77, 79, 89; Rome 1936-42). Here are found the agreements, made in September, 1146, in which the Genoese promised to assist the Emperor of Spain in an attack on Almeria in May of the following year and in which the Emperor, in return, undertook to attack also and promised certain rights to the Genoese in the city if it fell (I nos. 166-7, pp. 204-9). The Genoese stipulated that they were bound to join in no enterprise other than that against Almeria, in case they wished to ally with the Count of Barcelona. This they did by a treaty, concluded in 1146, in which the Genoese agreed to assist, after the capture of Almeria, in an attack on Tortosa; the Count on his side granted to the Genoese property and privileges in Tortosa should the city be captured (I nos. 168-9, pp. 210-17). These treaties were quite separate and indicate that each of these campaigns was a distinct undertaking. The later dealings of the Genoese with Alfonso and Ramon Berenger confirm this impression: see in the Codice dipl. I nos. 182-3 (pp. 228-30), 190-1 (pp. 236-40), 214-6 and 243-4 (pp. 265-7 and 291-5), and III nos. 52-3 (pp. 137-40). On the other hand, it must be remembered that these campaigns were both part of the wider effort of the Spanish Reconquest; and no doubt Alr fonso’s summons to join the campaign against Almeria stimulated in Ramon Berengea desire to recapture Tortosa.

page 227 note 75 The Ann. Ianuenses , in Annali Genovesi (n. 73 above) 1-75, apparently referring to the Ystoria, say that it was made ‘a sapientibus …, qui viderunt et interfuerunt,’ 35. Belgrano, , Ann. Ianuenses, intro. p. xcxci, and Imperiale, , op. cit. 210-1, however, both believe that Caffaro did not accompany the expedition in 1147-8. In this case, the passage in the Ann. may mean that Caffaro wrote his work from eye-witness reports.

page 228 note 76 The anonymous chronicler of Alfonso VII says of the pirates at Almeria: ‘qui circuentes diversa maria, nunc subito egressi terra Barensi, et terra Ascalonis, et Regionis Constantinopolitarum, et Siciliae, et Barcinonensis, et nunc Genuae, nunc Pisae, et Francorum, aut Portugaliae, et Galleciae, vel Asturianorum praedas captivos Christianos navibus adversantes fugiebant…,’ Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris , ed. Florez, H., España Sagrada 21.398.

page 228 note 77 See the account of the capture of Almeria, under the year 1154, in the Notae Pisanae, MGH SS 19.266, which are called ‘sehr merkwürdig und lehrreich’ by Wattenbach (n. 54 above) II 326. Schaube (n. 73 above) emphasizes the economic aspects of this expedition, the expense of which produced a financial collapse in Genoa: see Imperiale (n. 73 above) 226f. and Krueger, Hilmar C., ‘Post-War Collapse and Rehabilitation in Genoa, 1149-62,’ Studi in onore di Gino Luzzatto (Milan 1949) I 117–28. Economic considerations always influenced the policy of the Genoese, who in 1137/8 had even allied with the King of Morocco: Manfroni (n. 73 above) 195.

The Genoese appear to have taken oaths in connection with this expedition on at least three other occasions: before leaving Genoa, the consuls ‘omnibus discordantibus pacem iurare preceperunt’ (Caffaro, , Ystoria 80, line 6, cf. lines 12-4); then twice before the walls of Tortosa, the Genoese swore not to join battle without the common counsel and permission of the consuls (ibid. 86) and not to leave Tortosa before the city fell (ibid. 87). To capture Tortosa, , ‘pro honore Dei et civitatis Ianuensis’ (ibid. 85), they wintered at Barcelona.

page 230 note 94 The date of this famous poem is much disputed: see Poésies complètes du Troubadour Marcabru, ed. Dejeanne, J.-M.-L. (Bibliothèque Méridionale, lre Série, 12; Toulouse 1909) 229, where Diez, Suchier, and Lewent are cited in favor of 1146-7 and Meyer, in favor of anterior to 1147. Boissonade 222 and 233-7 examines the poem in great detail with a view to dating it in 1138 or 1138-45 at the outside.

page 230 note 96 This army first moved on Calatrava, which fell in January, 1147 (Sandoval [n. 88 above] 123-4 and 126; Schirrmacher [n. 73 above] 147 n. 2) and was granted first to the Templars and later was defended by the Cistercians of the Abbey of Fitero in Navarre. So was established the Order of the Knights of Calatrava, which Alexander III approved in 1164: Thompson, A. H., ‘The Monastic Orders,’ CMH 5.682. Alfonso's army then took Anjudar and Baños before setting siege to Baeza: Chron. Ad. Imp. ed. Belgrano, v. 298 and pp. 420 n. 3, 421 n. 1. (On Anjudar: Schirrmacher 149; on Baeza: Sandoval 124-5; España Sagrada 16.483, 22.272, 36. cxciv [see n. 229 below]; Schirrmacher 149.) Here they encountered strong opposition, and many troops had already gone home (Chron. Ad. Imp. ed. Belgrano, vv. 334-7) by the time when, during the summer, envoys arrived at Baeza from the Catalonian, French, and Genoese forces that had meanwhile gathered at Almeria (ibid. vv. 340f.). The Bishop of Astorga, however, rallied the remaining Spanish troops to go on to Almeria. The poem breaks off in the middle of his speech.

Later Spanish chronicles, of which there are several, naturally viewed this campaign in a different light from contemporaries.

Próspero de Bofarull, D. y Mascarò, , IV (Barcelona 1849) nos. 51 (pp. 113-23), 54 (126-9), 56 (130-5), 58 (136-40), 61 (144-68), 70 (193-6), 139 (328), and 147 (347-55). In 1131, Alfonso of Aragon willed that ‘… si Deus dederit michi Tortosam tota sit ospitalis ihierosolomitani,’ ibid. no. 2, p. 11. Ramon Berenger in 1136, however, granted the entire city and diocese of Tortosa to William VI of Montpellier (ibid. no. 22, pp. 53-4, in a mutilated form; and Liber Instrumentorum memorialium: Cartulaire des Guillems de Montpellier , ed. Germain, A. [Montpellier 1884-6] no. clii, pp. 284-5), who in his will in 1146 bequeathed the city to his younger son William (d’Achery, Luc, Spicilegium, edd. Baluze and Martène [Paris 1723] III 498-500; and Liber Instr. mem. no. xcv, pp. 177-83). Several of the charters listed above concern the problem of the division of Tortosa after the conquest. In spite of the grants to the Hospitallers and to William of Montpellier, one third of the city seems to have been given to William of Moncada and another to the Genoese (see n. 73 above) and yet another portion to the Templars (presumably under Ramon Berenger's grant of 1143: see n. 100 below). However, William, the son of William VI of Montpellier, still called himself ‘William of Tortosa’ as late as 1157 (D’Achéry III 526). The whole problem is confused, and the explanations advanced by DeVic, and Vaissete, , op. cit. (n. 9 above) III 739-40, and by Defourneaux, , op. cit. (n. 69 above) 177, are not altogether satisfactory.

page 232 note 101 It is too specific for a conventional arenga and was clearly composed for this charter.

The date of this poem is no less disputed than that of the ‘Emperaire’: see ibid. 235. Milà and Suchier date it 1146/7; Meyer argues from the reference to the death of the Count of Poitou (1137) ‘que le vers del Lavador n'est pas de beaucoup postérieur à cet événement’; Crescini and Lewent follow Meyer, as does Boissonade (n. 9 above) 231. While 1138 is not impossible, the reference to the Templars appears to suggest a date posterior to the great privilege of 1143.

page 233 note 105 Caffaro, , Ystoria 86; Codice diplomatico … di Genova I 236-8; Chron. Ad. Imp. ed. Belgrano, v. 348: ‘in ordine magnus.’ It is not impossible that William came with the Genoese, as DeVic and Vaissete (n. 9 above) III 738-9, suggest, although Caffaro does not mention this. The Counts of Montpellier had a tradition of co-operation with the Genoese, who with the Pope had assisted William VI to reestablish his power in Montpellier in 1143: Germain, A., Histoire de la Commune de Montpellier I (Montpellier 1851) 19-21: Liber Instr. (n. 99 above) xi; Manfroni (n. 73 above) 195;Lewis, Archibald R., ‘Seigneurial Administration in Twelfth Century Montpellier,’ Speculum 22 (1947) 568. ‘Remarquons … l'intervention génoise dans ces affaires Montpelliéraines et Aragonaises…,’ says Germain, , Liber Instr. xii; ‘Guillem VI attacha une si haute valeur à cette intervention, que, pour en reconnaître le bienfait, il concéda aux Génois une maison à Montpellier, où ils eurent dès lors un centre commercial.’

page 233 note 106 The new Abbot of Grandeselve, in 1149, was Alexander of Cologne, who had been converted to the monastic life by St. Bernard during his preaching of the crusade in the Rhineland, 1146-7: Greven, Joseph, ‘Die Kölnfahrt Bernhards von Clairvaux,’ Annalen des historischen Vereins für den Niederrhein 120 (1932) 1012. On William of Montpellier, see Manrique, , Cist. Ann. II (n. 80 above) under 1149, iii 5 (pp. 130-1); Histoire littéraire de la France… par les religieux Bénédictins … de Saint Maur, 13.324f.; DeVic and Vaissete III 737f., 778, 820, and IV 182-3 (note 37, viii); and the Liber Instr. vi-xii. The Counts of Montpellier were vassals for part of their lands both of the King of Castile and of the Counts of Barcelona and therefore had close relations with Spain in the twelfth century. William VI took a special interest in Catalonia, and as a monk he was present at the foundation of the Abbey of Vaullure (Santa-Cruz) by William of Moncada: DeVic and Vaissete III 820; Defourneaux (n. 69 above) 177. See also his interesting will, cited n. 99 above.

page 233 note 109 See my ‘Note on the Route of the Anglo-Flemish Crusaders,’ Speculum 28 (1953) 526. On the vexed problem of the participation of Pisans in the campaign, I do not agree with Belgrano in his belief (Chron. Ad. Imp. p. 398) that they were present: Caffaro and the Notae Pisanae make no mention of them, nor the letter from the Pisans to Ramon Berenger in Colección (n. 99 above) no. 154, pp. 371-2, nor a charter of Alfonso which mentions Genoese aid: Rassow, Peter, ‘Die Urkunden Kaiser Alfons VII. von Spanien,’ Archiv für Urkundenforschung 10 (1928) 444 and 11 (1929) 99-100. The two sources where they are mentioned — Robert of Torigny, Chron. (n. 6 above) 155 and Chron. Ad. Imp. ed. Belgrano, v. 347 — are not reliable. The confusion may have arisen, as Langer (n. 73 above) 31 n. 2 suggests, out of the undoubted Pisan participation in the attack on Majorca in 1114-5: Chaytor (n. 103 above) 57; Defourneaux 155; or, I think, perhaps more likely, out of the fact that one of the Genoese leaders was named Ansaldo Pizo: Caffaro (n. 73) passim; Ann. Ianuenses (n. 75) 35; or possibly out of the presence at the siege of Lisbon of a Pisan engineer, who may have gone on to Tortosa: De exp. Lyx. 142 and 162; letter of Duodechin, MGH SS 17.28. Pisa was in any case throughout this period occupied by a war with Lucca. In point of fact, she objected to the Genoese attack in 1146 on Minorca, over which the Pisans asserted a claim on the grounds of their earlier expedition: Manfroni (n. 73 above) 208. Of the presence, however (which appears to have hitherto escaped notice), of Ventimiglians on this expedition, there can be no doubt: Codice diplomatico (n. 73 above) I no. 194, pp. 242-3.

The fact that the Bishops of Al Mahdia seem to have resided at Palermo (Mesnage 219-20) suggests that Roger II may have used them as instruments of his dynastic policy.

(n. 121 above) III 421. He, however, does not appear to have realized fully the connection of this campaign with Roger's withdrawal from Greece; but he realized Roger's aim, for he says of of the crusade that Roger, ‘ne usava gli avvantaggi,’ ibid.

page 237 note 130 Other common names for the crusade include iter, expeditio, and profectio, sometimes with Dei or Ierosolymitana, and occasionally with some such phrase as ad debellandos paganos to indicate its military character. In no contemporary source is it called a crusade; the nearest equivalent is in the Ann. sancti Iacobi Leodiensis, MGH SS 16.641, where the soldiers are referred to as ‘crucizatur.’ Among the sources using the terms ‘pilgrimage’ and ‘pilgrims,’ see: Ann. Herbipolenses, MGH SS 16.3; Ann. sancti Dionysii, MGH SS 13.720; Continuatio Praemonstratensis, MGH SS 6.453; Continuatio Claustroneoburgensis II, MGH SS 9.614; Helmold of Bosau, Chron. Slavorum (n. 50 above) 115f.; Hildegard of Bingen, who referred to the Pope as ‘pater peregrinorum’: Watterich, J. M., Pontificum Romanorum … Vitae ab aequalibus conscriptae (Leipzig 1862) II 302; William of Saint-Denis, in both the Vita Sugeri (in Oeuvres complètes de Suger , ed. de la Marche, Lecoy [Société de l'Histoire de France; Paris 1867J 394-5) and ‘Le dialogue apologétique du moine Guillaume, biographe de Suger,’ ed. Wilmart, A., Revue Mabillon (1942) 103 and 109. Pfeiffer (n. 31 above) 8-9 has drawn attention to the fact that in the Middle Ages peregrinatio was a general term embracing the modern concepts of pilgrimage and crusade; but he maintains that medieval men in fact made this distinction. The sources on the Second Crusade do not support this view: they draw no clear line between a crusade and a pilgrimage. The crusaders were quite as much pilgrims as they were fighters: see Romuald of Salerno, Chron. ed. Garufi, C. A., RIS2 7. i 229; Richard of Poitiers, Chron. RHGF 12.416, who says that King Louis ‘… in urbe Sancta, causa orationis, ut peregrinus remansit’; Odo of Deuil, De prof. Ludov. ed. Berry, (n. 9 above) 2; Monumenta Boica 12.329; De glorioso rege Ludovico, in Vie de Louis le Gros par Suger (n. 9 above) 160-1; and nn. 131 and 132 below. In their original forms, Erdmann has shown (op. cit. n. 64 above, 281-3), there was no popular association of the ideas of pilgrimage and of war against the heath en. By 1150, however, they were fully equated. This important development was principally the result of the fact that, through the exercise of the ecclesiastical power of remission of sins, a military expedition against non-Christians was put on an equal spiritual basis and rewarded with the same spiritual benefits as a pilgrimage: ibid. 306-7 and 319. There was as yet, however, little consciousness of the crusade as an institution or of the Second Crusade as a successor to the First. Very few sources refer to it as a second crusade at all: see Chron. Regia Coloniensis, rec. II (n. 54 above) 82; Bern. ep. 363, col. 568 (reference to Peter the Hermit); Henry of Huntingdon, Hist. Angl. (n. 9 above) 281; letters of the Emperor Manuel, RHGF 15.440-1 and 16.9-10. Louis VII was conscious of following a precedent: Odo of Deuil, ed. Berry 58 and 130; and Odo himself may have consulted an account of the First Crusade: William of Saint-Denis, ‘Dialogue’ 103. Important evidence of the survival at St. Denis of the tradition of the First Crusade is the window given by Suger, which is now lost but was reproduced by Montfaucon in his Les Monuments de la Monarchie Françoise I (Paris 1729) plates l-liv (389f.): cf. de Mély, F., ‘La Croix des premiers Croisés,’ in vol. III of Riant, Paul, Exuviae sacrae Constantinopolitanae (Paris 1904) 2-11.

page 238 note 131 MGH SS 21.329. The Chron. Regia Coloniensis 82-3 says, ‘… mota sunt omnia regna Occidentis et accensa desiderio eundi in Ierusalem et visitare sepulchrum Domini ac dimicare contra gentes quae ignorant Deum et dilatare terminos christiani imperii in Oriente.’

page 238 note 132 This is the case, for instance, with two crusaders who were not of very high rank. So Lambert of Ardres says that his father joined the crusade ‘ut dominicum venerari et … sepulchrum videre mereretur,’ Historia Comitum Ghisnenium et Ardensium, MGH SS 24.633. Abbot Hermann of St. Martin of Tournai went ‘… gloriosum Domini Jesu Christi sepulchrum invisere multo ardore sitiens…,’ D’Achéry, Spicilegium II 926. Cf. Ann. Ratisponenses, MGH SS 17.586.

By such purchases, mortgages, and gifts many churches substantially increased their property. ‘Tempore quo expeditio Jerosolymitana … totum commovit fere occidentem, ceperunt singuli tanquam ultra non redituri vendere possessiones suas, quas Ecclesiae secundum facultates suas suis prospicientes utilitatibus emerunt’ : Monumenta Boica 3.540. And the author of the Chron. Tornacensis, in Corpus Chronicorum Flandriae , ed. de Smet, J.-J. II (Brussels 1841) 564, says of the crusaders: ‘… nonnulla praedia et possessiones quae habebant vendentes, pretiumque eorum secum deferentes.’ This occasionally led to difficulties. Bartholomew of Cicon, on his ‘deathbed’ at Jerusalem, promised to return to the priory of Mouthier-Haute-Pierre a mill and seven serfs; but when he recovered, he thought better of his promise, which, however, the priory, with the aid of the Archbishop of Besançon, forced him to keep: see Castan, Auguste, Un épisode de la deuxième croisade (Besançon 1862). On the other hand, it must be remembered that crusading clerics were not above selling the property of their churches: see Translatio sancti Mamantis, AS, 17 August, III 443. Laymen, , also, occasionally seized ecclesiastical possessions for this purpose: Theoderic of Flanders took two pieces from the treasury of St. Columba at Sens: Chron. Senonense Sanctae Columbae, RHGF 12.288.

On the financing of this crusade in general, see Pfeiffer, (n. 31 above) 78-81; Bridrey 45-6 and 66f. The relevant sources, of which Mrs. Berry has kindly sent me a list, include the Fragmentum hist. ex veteri membrana de tributo Floriacensibus imposito, RHGF 12.94-5; a letter from John of Ferrières to Suger, ibid. 15.497; and a letter from the royal chancellor Cadurcus to Suger, ibid. 497-8. But the evidence of these and later (Ralph of Diceto and Matthew Paris) sources is either unreliable or indefinite. Louis VII may have subjected certain churches to a crusading aid, but it is far from clear that this was a general tax, of which many historians speak. Nor does this levy appear to have roused any ‘mécontentement général,’ to which Bridrey 69 and Vuitry, A., Études sur le régime financier de la France avant la Révolution de 1789 (Paris 1878) 390-1, refer. This whole problem is in need of further study.

page 244 note 168 The purpose of this visit seems to have been to deal with local heresy; Bern. ep. 242 coll. 436-7.

page 245 note 170 In general, on the active part played by the Cistercians in the preparations for the crusade, see Pfeiffer 44-54 and 78-81. When possible, Bernard preached the crusade in person rather than by letters carried by agents: in ep. 363, col. 565, he says, ‘Agerem id libentius viva voce…’ Occasionally other Cistercian abbots were able to preach, such as Rainald of Morimund: Pfeiffer 46; cf. Fechner, Hilde, Die politischen Theorien des Abtes Bernhard von Clairvaux in seinen Briefen (Boon and Cologne 1933) 61. Simple monks were presumably not allowed to preach (cf. Appendix A) but were sent with letters wherever Bernard or another abbot was unable to go. Most celebrated among these is Rudolph, who in at least one chronicle (Gesta Abbatum Lobbiensium, MGH SS 21.329) appears as a crusading preacher more important than Bernard, since he took it on himself, with Lambert Abbot of Lobbes as translator, to preach the crusade in the Summer and Autumn of 1146 in the Lowlands and in the Rhine valley, where he aroused a terrible persecution of the Jews. St. Bernard was furious (see his ep. 365 to the Archbishop of Mainz, who may well have been nervous, remembering the sack of the archiepiscopal palace at Mainz during the riots connected with the First Crusade: Runciman I 138-9) and sent Rudolph packing back to Clairvaux: see Bernhardi 522-4; Cosack 281-2 and 294 n. 1; Pfeiffer 46-7. — Bernard’s secretary Nicholas wrote several crusading letters for his master: Rassow (n. 45 above) 245-6; on Nicholas, see Steiger, Augustin, ‘Nikolaus, Mönch in Clairvaux, Sekretär des hl. Bernhard,’ Studien und Mitteilungen zur Geschichte des Benediktinerordens und seiner Zweige 38 (Neue Folge 7; 1917) 41-50; Pfeiffer 45; and Leclercq, Jean, ‘Saint Bernard et ses secrétaires,’ Revue Bénédictine 61 (1951) 220. The secretary Geoffrey carried a letter to the Bretons: Rassow 265 and 274; on Geoffrey, see Leclercq 220-5, and Greven (n. 106 above) 6-8. Geoffrey, together with another secretary, Gerhard, was constantly with Bernard on his travels for the crusade: Pfeiffer 46f. Abbot Adam of Ebrach carried to the diet of Regensburg (February, 1147) two of Bernard’s letters, one of which was taken on to Bohemia by Henry of Olmütz: Rassow 265-6 and 274-5; von Fichtenau, Heinrich, ‘Bamberg, Würzburg, und die Stauferkanzlei,’ Mitteilungen des österreichischen Instituts für Geschichtsforschung 53 (1939) 274; Pfeiffer 49 and 51-2. He probably also carried a letter to Abbot Gerlach of Rein, who preached the crusade in the Steiermark and Carinthia: Pfeiffer 49 and 52-3.

page 245 note 171 To Speyer, East France and Bavaria, Cologne, Brescia, England, Bohemia, Brittany and possibly Spain: see Rassow, 243f. and Cosack, 293-6. The letter to the Archbishop and congregation of Cologne has since been printed by Greven 44-8. To these letters should also be added that addressed to the Hospitallers discovered at Jena by Jean Leclercq and published in the Revue Mabillon 43 (1953) 1-4, together with an interesting letter written to Louis VII by one ‘W. Dei gratia dux et miles Christi et servus crucis,’ who says, in words strongly reminiscent of Bernard's crusading letters, that he has received the cross ‘ex manibus sanctissimis abbatis Claraevallis’ and discusses the preparations for, and the route of the crusade.

page 246 note 173 Bern. epp. 247 (coll. 445-7), 365 (coll. 570-1) and 468 (coll. 672-3). On ep. 468 see Rassow 274 and Pfeiffer, E., ‘Die Stellung des hl. Bernhard zur Kreuzzugsbewegung nach seinen Schriften,’ Cistercienser-Chronik 46 (1934) 276 n. 28. Epp. 256 and 364 (coll. 463-5 and 568-70), which Mabillon dates 1146, in fact refer to the preparations for the crusade of 1150: ibid. 306 n. 90.

page 246 note 174 Hüffer (n. 164 above) 392, and Vacandard, E., Vie de saint Bernard (3rd. ed. Paris 1903) II 303 n. 1, who mention a letter ‘ad peregrinantes Jerusalem’ in the Royal Archives at Barcelona. Rassow was unable to locate this letter: loc. cit. 246.

page 246 note 175 The meaning and date of this letter are not above dispute. Mabillon's late date of 1153 seems to be based upon a confusion between ‘Peter the brother of Your Excellency’ (Petrus Celsitudinis vestrae frater) and Peter Abbot of Celle to whom ep. 419 is addressed: Sancti Bernardi … Opera omnia, ed. Mabillon, Jean (Paris 1839) I 1.937. The letter certainly suggests that this Peter joined the Second Crusade: see Azevado (n. 115 above) 47-8. If it may therefore be dated in 1147, it shows that Bernard was in close touch with Portugal at this time. Another letter to Alfonso, in Manrique, , Cist. Ann. II (n. 80 above) under 1147, ix (p. 71) appears to be a forgery: see Mabillon, , Bernardi… Opera I 1.767-8 and 959; Defourneaux (n. 69 above) 212-3.

The inscription printed by Brandão (n. 115 above) 147 suggests 1147 rather than 1148 as the foundation date; the Peter mentioned here may be either the brother or the son of Alfonso Henriques (ibid. 147-50) — possibly the brother mentioned by St. Bernard in ep. 308 (see n. 175 above). Cf. Broqua, De, Le Portugal feudataire de Clairvaux (Dijon 1927) 31, whose suggestion of 1142 seems to have no basis whatsoever.

page 247 note 178 De exp. Lyx. 6884; see n. 49 above. Rassow 271 considers this speech evidence of Cistercian influence on the author of the De exp. Lyx.; but I agree with Cramer (n. 44 above) 59 n. 26, that it has the appearance of being a genuine report, not a literary concoction. In this case, it witnesses the presence of Bernard’s ideas in Portugal. On the influence of St. Bernard on Alfonso Henriques’ 1147 campaign, see Azevado 46-8 and 95, who concludes that, ‘certo è que nessa concessão, obtida de Eugénio III, para a expedição contra Lisboa, o principal agenciador foi o mesmo S. Bernardo, a isso movido pelo nosso primeiro rei,’ 47; and Livermore, who says that the Cistercians were established in Portugal before 1143 and that they ‘performed the enormous task of peopling and cultivating the newly-won territory,’ 81.

page 248 note 184 Caspar, Erich and Rassow, Peter, ‘Die Kreuzzugsbullen Eugens III.,’ Neues Archiv 45 (1924) 285305. Caspar's conclusions are supported by Gleber (n. 165 above) 37-8, who gives a careful survey of previous opinions and says of Caspar's work: ‘Damit ist zugleich festgelegt, dass Eugen III. den ersten Anstoss zur neuen Kreuzzugsbewegung gegeben hat,’ 38. Although Gleber admits that it is not impossible that Louis VII reached a similar idea independently, he certainly acted later than the Pope. The statement by Baldwin, Marshall W., ‘The Papacy and the Levant during the Twelfth Century,’ Bulletin of the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in America 3 (1944-5) 280, that ‘a comparatively recent study (Gleber) suggests that King Louis VII of France assumed the initiative and was supported later by Pope Eugenius III,’ appears to misinterpret Gleber's work. For a thorough bibliography, up to 1939, of the vexed problem of the origins of the Second Crusade, see Cramer 45 n. 1.

Cf. also Eugene's bull of July 16, 1145-6 (JL 8821), of which the Nov. 13 bull is an almost exact repeat.

II 17; Wetteren-Bruges-Paris 1926) 85101, and by Anciaux, 50-1, 196-208, and 272-4, who says of Gratian: ‘Le manque de clarté dans l’exposé du célèbre canoniste illustre à sa façon la complexité du problème au sujet de la confession, aussi bien que les hésitations des auteurs de la première moitié du xiie siècle,’ 207.

page 250 note 191 Anciaux, 328f. ‘Gratian in his Decretum,’ says Jacob, E. F. (‘Innocent III,’ CMH 6.38), ‘had balanced and compared the views of those who said that contrition alone was necessary and confession to a priest merely the attestation of pardon, and of those who maintained that complete remission could not take place before confession and satisfaction.’

page 250 note 192 Anciaux, 275–95. This doctrine was followed by many twelfth-century canonists, including Roland Bandinelli (Alexander III), Omnebene, and Zachary of Besançon, on whom see Anciaux 263-4 and 312f. Teetaert (n. 190 above) emphasizes that ‘au douzième siècle l'attention des théologiens se concentre sur l'efficacité de la contrition, qui est regardée à cette époque comme la partie principale et l'élément le plus important de la discipline pénitentielle,’ 85.

page 251 note 197 Ibid. 248–53. In his Ad Hugonem de S. Victore epistola de baptismo, PL 182.1037, Bernard says that ‘sola nihilominus poenitentia et cordis contritione obtinere veniam creditur, ne iam pro eo damnetur.’

Ezechiel 18.21. Also in his De laude novae militiae Bernard rejoiced that thieves and perjurors entered the Order of the Temple: see Rousset, (n. 8 above) 164.

page 251 note 200 Löwenfeld, Samuel, ‘Documents relatifs à la Croisade de Guillaume, Comte de Ponthieu,’ Archives de l'Orient latin 2 (1884) Documents, 254, Eugene III to William of Ponthieu: ‘Quia vero signum crucis dominice assumpsisti et ad iter Ierosolymitanum accingeris, nolentes te laborem tantum non ad anime tue profectum arripere, nobilitati tue mandamus et exhortamur … ut praefato abbati et monachis … antequam iter incipias, in eorum (iudicum) arbitrio vel iudicio iusticiam facias.’ Cf. the letter from Eugene to the Archbishop of Rouen and the Bishops of Coutances and Évreux and the letter from Hugh of Rouen to Count William, ibid. William had taken the cross at Vézelay (De glorioso rege Ludovico, in Vie de Louis le Gros [n. 9 above] 159) and seems to have cared little for the ecclesiastical prohibitions. As Sauvage, R. N., L’Abbaye de Saint-Martin de Troarn (Mémoires de la Société des Antiquaires de Normandie, 4th Series, 4; Caen 1911) 26, says: ‘Les menaces de l'archevêque, son parent, lui semblaient, sans doute, peu dangereuses, et les censures ecclésiastiques n’étaient pas chose nouvelle pour lui.’ In any case, he departed with the army of Louis VII before restoring the property of the Abbey. See Sauvage, 23-9, and Epistolae Pontificum Romanorum ineditae , ed. Löwenfeld, Samuel (Leipzig 1885) no. 201, p. 105.

page 252 note 201 JL 9166; Löwenfeld, , ‘Documents’ 253. Cf. the view of Peter Lombard that good acts performed in a state of mortal sin are never meritorious: Anciaux 269-70; and the view of Ralph Niger with regard to the Third Crusade: Flahiff, George B., Deus non vult: A Critic of the Third Crusade,’ Mediaeval Studies 9 (1947) 173.

page 252 note 202 This difference in point of view is clearly seen in the versions of Bernard’s letters for the Crusade. In the earliest version, he urged men to take the cross with the words: ‘Suscipe crucis signum, et omnium pariter, de quibus corde contrito confessionem feceris, indulgentiam obtinebis,’ ep. 363, col. 567. In the latest version, the letter to Duke Ladislaus of Bohemia, this had been rephrased to read: ‘Suscipite signum crucis, et omnium, de quibus corde contrito confessionem feceritis, plenam indulgentiam delictorum hanc vobis summus pontifex offert, vicarius eius cui dictum est: Quodcunque solveris super terra, erit solutum et in coelo,’ ep. 458, col. 653; see Rassow, (n. 45 above) 262–3.

page 253 note 203 Bernard clearly regarded Quantum predecessores as fundamental, although Villey (n. 68 above), perhaps goes too far in saying that, ‘sa prédication n'est qu'un commentaire de l'encyclique Quantum predecessores,’ 106. Bernard developed its ideas from his own, highly spiritual attitude. He had, in any case, a profound influence on Eugene's thought.

page 253 note 204 For instance, Schwerin, Ursula, Die Aufrufe der Päpste zur Befreiung des heiligen Landes (Historische Studien, ed. Ebering, E. 301; Berlin 1937) 74: ‘… die Kreuzzugsenzyklica Eugens III. … ist zu arm im Gedanklichen, zu wenig schwungvoll in Sprache und Stil, um Ursache einer derartigen Massenbegeisterung sein zu können.’

page 253 note 205 It is evidence of the conservatism and the memory of the Papacy that alone among the Western sources of the Second Crusade, the papal bulls show a strong consciousness of the precedent of the First Crusade, cf. n. 130 above.

The ninth stanza is reminiscent of the crusading bulls: Illuc quicumque tenderit Mortuus ibi fuerit Caeli bona receperit Et cum sanctis remanserit.

page 254 note 210 JL 8876. For an ingenious, if not altogether convincing, account of the circumstances of this reissue, see Gleber (n. 165 above) 45-6. It differs from the earlier bulls in its slightly increased prohibitions against luxury: see Caspar, and Rassow, (n. 184 above) 287-8. This Quantum predecessores (II) may be the ‘omni favo litteras dulciores’ mentioned by Odo of Deuil, De prof. Ludov. ed. Berry 8. More probably, however, Odo is here referring to some other, lost letter sent by the Pope to Louis: Bernhardi (n. 1 above) 519; Hüffer, (n. 164 above) 405-6; Gleber 45 and n. 7, where he cites authorities disagreeing with this view.

page 256 note 218 Very briefly, that Eugene had hoped to return to Italy accompanied by Conrad to crush the papal enemies at Rome: Gleber, 50 and 53-5.

page 256 note 219 Also to the English and the Low Country men, see below, pp. 260–1. These four peoples were those who had played the principal parts in the First Crusade. Erdmann (n. 64 above) 272-4 brings out that in the eleventh century crusading thought had its broadest development in France and Italy. Urban II may have seen the First Crusade in theory as a general offensive to free Christendom (ibid. 306 and 321; Lecler, J., ‘L’idée de Croisade d’après les travaux récents,’ Études 29 [1936] 52-4), but he never developed this idea fully, and the response in fact was limited. On the scornful attitude of the Germans towards the First Crusade, see Ekkehard of Aura, in Krey, A. C., The First Crusade (Princeton 1921) 42. Speaking of the Second Crusade, therefore, Karl Hampe correctly says: ‘Das Unternehmen gewann sogleich einen universaleren Charakter als die erste Kreuzfahrt, bei der Urban wesentlich nur den französischen Lehnsadel nach dem Orient gelenkt hatte,’ Deutsche Kaisergeschichte in der Zeit der Salier und Staufer (10th ed. by Baethgen, F., Heidelberg 1949) 133. On the German attitude towards the First Crusade, see aso Hauck, Albert, Kirchengeschichle Deutschlands IV (Leipzig 1903) 895.

page 256 note 220 Most modern scholars agree that this fact payed an important part in the failure of the crusade: Kugler, (n. 1 above) 95f; Vasiliev, (n. 53 above) 419-22; Bernhardi, 532-3; Cartellieri, 357; Rassow, Peter, Honor Imperii: Die Neue Politik Friedrich Barbarossas 1152-1159 (Munich and Berlin 1940) 26. The division of responsibility is not, however, quite as easy as Vacandard, with sublime self-confidence, suggests: ‘A la distance où nous sommes de ces événements, il est facile de les juger avec impartialité et d’établir exactement la part de responsabilité qui revient à chacun des auteurs de la seconde croisade,’ op. cit. (n. 174 above) II 450.

page 256 note 221 See Appendix B.

page 256 note 222 Bernard’s letter for the Wendish Crusade, ep. 457, coll. 652-4, appears to me to have been written after Divina dispensatione (II). On this important point I disagree with Hüffer (n. 164 above) 427 n. 1; Rassow (n. 45 above) 265; Artler (n. 60 above) 314; Bündung (n. 60 above) 37-40, and others who hold that this letter preceded in date the papal bull. Several reasons incline me towards the opposite opinion. In the first place, it seems highly improbable, in view of Bernard’s extreme deference in taking up the preaching of the crusade, that he would here have taken upon himself the authority to change completely the original concept and especially to grant full indulgence to these new crusaders. Secondly, the language of this letter suggests that it is subsequent at least to the Diet of Frankfurt. ‘Quia enim verbum hoc crucis parvitati nostrae Dominus evangelizandum commisit, consilio domini regis et episcoporum et principum, qui convenerant Frankonovort, denuntiamus … Placuit autem omnibus in Frankenevort congregatis, quatenus…,’ coll. 651-2. The ‘Dominus’ here may indeed refer to the Pope; and in any case, since the diet lasted until late March (Bernhardi 545f.), Bernard can hardly have written his letter before then. There is in the third place some evidence that Bernard sent with each of his letters a copy of the papal crusading bull: see n. 247 below. If this supposition is correct, he could not have sent letter 457 before Eugene had issued the relevant bull, Divina dispensatione (II).

page 257 note 224 Baethgen, Friedrich, ‘Die Kurie und der Osten im Mittelalter,’ Deutsche Ostforschungen (note 65 above) 310–30. After the Investiture Controversy, Baethgen says, the Curia ‘versuchte, im Osten sich unabhängig vom Reich ihre eigenen Machtposition zu schaffen …,’ 330.

page 257 note 225 Hauck, (n. 219 above) IV 160f.; p. 160 n. 7 he lists the papal legates in Germany from ca. 1125 to 1150.

page 257 note 226 Baethgen 324: ‘Hatte es früher der Ostmission nur aus der Ferne seinen Segen gespendet, so nahm es jetzt ihre Leitung in die eigenen Hände.’ Eugene was also more active than his predecessors in taking German monasteries under papal protection: see Hauck IV 165.

page 257 note 227 Baethgen 324-5: ‘Damit hatte das Prinzip der gewaltsamen Bekehrung in der Ostmission Eingang gefunden…’ but care should be taken not to overestimate the extent of ecclesiastical concern for this movement.

page 257 note 228 See pp. 246–7 above.

page 258 note 229 España Sagrada 36.cxcii-iv: ‘Carta facta Palentiae XIII. Kalendas Martii Era MCLXXXVI quando praefatus Imperator habuit ibi colloquium … de vocatione Domini Papae ad Concilium, et in anno quo ab eodem Imperatore capta fuit Almaria et Baeza…’; cf. similar charters in Azevado (n. 115 above) 109 n. 1 (document of the National Archives, Madrid, C. D. Samos 794-21-1) and 106 n. 1. It should be noted that these charters are dated 1186 Era Hispanica (1148) and yet in the same year that Alfonso took Almaria, that is, 1185 (1147): the only explanation seems to be that, although in the era Hispanica the number changed on January 1 (Grotefend, H., Taschenbuch der Zeitrechnung [8th ed. by Grotefend, O., Hannover 1941] 14), they reckoned the year as running from Easter to Easter or March 25 to March 25 (Grotefend, 12-4; Poole, Reginald Lane, ‘The Beginning of the Year in the Middle Ages,’ Studies in Chronology and History [Oxford 1934] 1-27). In any case, the papal letters must have arrived in 1147. I can find no reference in España Sagrada or Gerhard Säbekow, Die päpstlichen Legationen nach Spanien und Portugal bis zum Ausgang des XII. Jahrhunderts (Berlin 1931) to a council attended by a papal legate, at Burgos in 1146, which Schramm (n. 3 above) mentions, p. 111. Is he perhaps referring to the Burgos council of 1136, which was attended by Cardinal Guido (España Sagrada 26. 438-40; Rassow, , loc. cit. n. 92 above, 212f.)?

So the charter which reestablished the Order of Belchite in 1136 promised complete remission of sins to all who joined the Order. In addition, ‘Qui vero ibidem deo per annum servire voluerit, eandem quam si Jherusalem tenderet, remissionem assequatur. … Simili autem remissione sepulchrum domni de captivitate ereptum est et Maiorica et Cesaraugusta et alie, et similiter deo annuente iter Jherusalemitanum ab hac parte aperietur et ecclesia dei, que adhuc sub captivitate ancilla tenetur, libera efficietur,’ Rassow, (n. 92 above) 224-5.

page 259 note 235 Gelasius II, apparently following now-lost documents of Urban II, issued two bulls for the Spanish Reconquest: JL 6636 (PL 163.489-91) and 6665 (PL 163.508); see Paulus, op. cit. I 197, and Villey, 201. In the second of these, Gelasius not only freed ‘a suorum vinculis peccatorum’ anyone who with a contrite heart died for the recovery of Saragossa but also assigned to the discretion of the provincial bishops the indulgence to be granted to those who simply joined this enterprise or even aided in the rebuilding of the church or the support of the clergy. For Calixtus II, see n. 137 above and Paulus I 197-8. Lucius II in 1144 reissued the bull of Urban II and Gelasius II for the reconquest of Tarragona: PU in Spanien I no. 53, pp. 320-2; and when it was recovered, Tarragona was held by the Count of Barcelona as a papal fief: Watson, E. W., ‘The Development of Ecclesiastical Organisation and its Financial Basis,’ CMH 6.555. A synod called at Compostella in 1125 by Diego Gelmirez, the legate of Honorius II, granted full indulgence to crusaders in Spain: España Sagrada 20.427-30; Paulus I 198; Villey 206. The papal legate Guido of SS. Cosmas and Damian was present at the Council of Burgos (1136), which promised remission of sins to members of the Order of Belchite (see nn. 229 and 234 above), and he presided at the Fifth Council of Gerona (1143) when Ramon Berenger made his great grant to the Templars (see pp. 231-2 above and Säbekow, , op. cit. n. 229 above, 46).

page 259 note 236 PU in Spanien I no. 54, pp. 322–4. It is interesting for the method by which Eugene composed his crusading bulls that in this one he followed word for word not the most recent issue of this bull by Lucius II but that of Gelasius II (see n. 235 above).

page 259 note 237 See n. 186 above.

page 259 note 238 JL 9594; Colección (n. 99 above) no. 128, pp. 314-5. This bull, undated by Bofarull, may have been taken for a bull of 1146/7 (see n. 240 below). It was reissued by Anastasius IV: ibid. no. 133, 320–1; PU in Spanien I no. 70, pp. 316-7.

A precedent for this may have been not only the Genoese participation in the First Crusade but also the indulgence granted to the Pisans who attacked the Balearic Islands in 1114-5 (see n. 109 above): Chron.

Hyacinth, later Pope Celestine III, was enthusiastic for the Reconquest: sec his letter in PU in Rom , ed. Kehr, Paul, Nachrichten … Göttingen, Phil.-hist. Kl. 1903, no. 12, pp. 48-9. He presided over two councils in Spain, at Valladolid and at Lerida (the first council there since its recovery). The canons of these councils (Valladolid: Erdmann, , Papsttum und Portugal 55-8; Lerida: Valls-Taberner, F., ‘Ein Konzil zu Lerida im Jahre 1155,’ Papsttum und Kaisertum: Festschrift Paul Kehr , ed. Brackmann, Albert [Munich 1926] 364-8) closely resemble each other. Canon I is a fully developed crusading bull; it unquestionably reveals the influence of Rome, yet shows that as late as 1155 the Papacy was not even in theory the only eccesiastical authority capable of conferring the spiritual and temporal benefits of a crusade: cf. bull of Gelasius II, n. 235 above; contrast Villey, , op. cit. 100-1.

page 260 note 244 Cf. Kantorowicz, Ernst, Pro Patria Mori in Medieval Political Thought,’ American Historical Review 56 (1951) 478 n. 22, who says that ‘in Spain the whole development (of the crusade) was different in so far as crusading idea and national idea or patriotism coincided’; see Erdmann, , Hist. Zeitschr. 141 (n. 49 above) 23f. and Entstehung (n. 64 above) 88-90, 269-70; cf. n. 49 above.

Rom. (n. 200 above) no. 200, pp. 103–4. For the names of some of the more important English crusaders, see De exp. Lyx. 5-6 (to David’s citations for William of Warenne may be added Chron. of Melrose, cited n. 70 above, 23) and Böhmer, Heinrich, Kirche und Staat in England und in der Normandie im XI. und XII. Jahrhundert (Leipzig 1899) 357 n. 2. David regards the response in England as slight (De exp. Lyx. 3-12), whereas Böhmer says that as a result of the crusade the number of fighters in the English civil war was sensibly diminished, and the war therefore took on a new character, 357; cf. also 407. For Scots on the crusade, see De exp. Lyx. 106 and Rassow, (n. 45 above) 269-7.

page 261 note 247 JL 11218; PL 200.383-6. Cosack (n. 167 above) 279 believed that this was a purely formal expression and maintained that ‘nach diesem (zeitgenössischen) Quellenmaterial tritt in keinem Lande die offizielle Kreuzpredigt unabhängig von Bernard auf…’ It is true that Bernard appears to have sent with each of his crusading letters a copy of the relevant papal bull: see the evidence cited by Cosack 279 n. 6, to which may be added the fact, kindly suggested by Dom Jean Leclercq, that in the Munich MS 22201, which was written at Windberg in 1165 (cf. Hüffer, , loc. cit. in n. 164 above, 411), Bernard’s ep. 363 is preceded by Quantum predecessores. The foregoing evidence, however, indicates that Eugene sent at least some copies of his crusading bulls directly and independently.

page 262 note 250 Poole 294. Kehr, , in PU in Spanien I (n. 232 above) no. 60, pp. 331–2, prints a bull dated from St. Peter's on Dec. 12 and addressed to ‘Ni. abbati ecclesie Sancti Rufi.’ Kehr assigns this document to 1152, in which case it would throw into utter confusion the slight knowledge gathered by Poole concerning the early career of Nicholas Breakspear. For Nicholas became Cardinal Bishop of Albano by December 16, 1149, at the latest (Brixius [n. 243 above] 56; JL II p. 20, indicates him as subscribing from January 30, 1150), and this bull would indicate that his successor at St. Rufus also bore the name of Nicholas — unless, that is, it may be dated December 12, 1149, when Eugene was certainly in Rome (JL 9359-9363) and presumably also Nicholas (see above). This bull may therefore be the last grant made to Nicholas as Abbot of St. Rufus. As Adrian IV, in any case, Nicholas Breakspear is known to have taken an interest in Spanish affairs: Kehr, , Das Papsttum und die Königreiche… (n. 240 above) 51.

Odo here mentions that, ‘Affluent multi multarum partium utrique miraculo, videlicet regi et apostolico peregrinis’; and it is not impossible that Eugene put on a pilgrim’s costume in order to symbolize his spiritual participation in the crusade.

page 264 note 262 On the duties of these legates, see Schlée, (n. 234 above) 1923. Ohnsorge (n. 211 above) 380 suggests that they were sent at the desire of the Emperor Manuel, who in his letter of March, 1147, asked the Pope to send a Cardinal with the French army. The example of the First Crusade, moreover, established a precedent for appointing a legate for the crusading army.

page 264 note 263 JL 9095; PL 180.1251-2. It appears surprising that Eugene did not select for this purpose Anselm of Havelberg, who had in 1136 debated at Constantinople with Nicetas of Nicomedia concerning the union of the Churches: see Dräseke, Johannes, ‘Bischof Anselm von Havelberg und seine Gesandtschaftsreisen nach Byzanz,’ Zeitschrift für Kirchengeschichte 21 (1900) 160-85: Bréhier, Louis, ‘Attempts at Reunion of the Greek and Latin Churches,’ CMH 4 (1923) 600; and Schreiber, Georg, ‘Anselm von Havelberg und die Ostkirche,’ Zeitschrift für Kirchengeschichte 60 (Dritte Folge 11; 1941) 357-62. Anselm had an exceptional understanding of the differences between the Greeks and the Latins. He met Eugene III at Tusculum in 1149 (not 1145, as in D'Achery, , Spicilegium I 161) and wrote for the Pope his remarkable Dialogorum libri III about his discussions with Nicetas: D'Achery I 161-207; see Dräseke, , loc. cit. 167f.

page 266 note 274 The attitude of contemporaries to the failure of the crusade seems never to have been studied adequately. See the brief remarks, mostly on the reaction against the Cistercians, in Röhricht, , Zeitschr. für Kirchengesch. (n. 183 above) 6. 555-6, and Beiträge (n. 9 above) II 79 and 102-3, nn. 90-1; Hirsch, (n. 13 above) 55-6; Hauck, (n. 129 above) IV 895-6; Cramer, (n. 44 above) 46 and 53-4; Cartellieri, (n. 37 above) 379-80; and the interesting study of Flahiff (n. 201 above) 162-79.

page 266 note 275 Odo, it is true, believed that God was with the expedition, the failure of which must be in accord with His inscrutible Will: cf. Odo of Deuil, ed. Berry, xxvi; but he always concentrated on the human and natural causes of the calamities. The fact that he hoped for revenge on the Greeks shows that he did not regard the failure as a divine punishment.

page 267 note 279 Bern. ep. 288, coll. 493-4; De consideratione, tr. Lewis, George (Oxford 1908) 3741. Pfeiffer 148 suggests that Bernard's principal defense against this criticism was to throw the responsibility for the crusade onto Eugene III and Louis VII. This, perhaps, was his defense against the charge that he had, without authorization, preached the crusade (see Appendix A); but fundamentally, as he emphasizes in De consideratione, both the Pope and he himself obeyed a divine mandate in this matter. Rousset’s assumption, op. cit. (n. 8 above) 159, that Bernard implicitly suggested that ‘les croisés sont donc eux-mêmes la cause de leur défaite’ is not justified by the text of De consideratione, nor, I believe, by the general tenor of Bernard's crusading thought. Cf. also Flahiff 164 n. 12.

Buche über die Erforschung des Antichrists,’ Jahresbericht der Thomasschule in Leipzig für das Schuljahr 1886-7 (Program no. 504, Leipzig 1887) part I p. 3. Sturmhoefel (11f.) carefully examines Gerhoh’s account of the crusade and points out that in spite of his prejudice and frequent untrustworthiness, he includes some material presumably based upon eye-witness reports, although his real importance for the historian of the Second Crusade lies in his distinctive attitude.

page 269 note 287 See n. 278 above. Also in the First Crusade, Ekkehard reports, many people considered the enterprise vain and frivolous: cited by Runciman I 141 n. 2. It is perhaps to these that an anonymous author refers when he says of the failure of the crusade (PL 155.1098) that ‘Gallia tota dolet, et ego, gens impia gaudet.’ Cf. Chron. Sancti Petri Erfordensis , in Monumenta Erphesfurtensia, ed. Holder-Egger, O. (MGH SS.r.G; Hannover 1899) 176; Ann. Sancti Iacobi Leodiensis, MGH SS 16.641. An interesting document, written according to Heinemann in 1147, bewails the sad state of the Church at this time when ‘Satan … tanta fortitudine catenas, quibus legatus est, concutit,’ Codex Diplomaticus Anhaltinus , ed. von Heinemann, Otto, I (936-1212; Dessau 1867-73) no. 336, pp. 252-4. In view of this evidence, Flahiff (n. 201 above) 165-6 perhaps overestimates the novelty of the opposition of Ralph Niger, writing in 1189, to the idea of crusading. Cf. n. 291 below.

page 269 note 288 Pflaum, H., ‘A Strange Crusader's Song,’ Speculum 10 (1935) 337–9. Since it is written in a thirteenth-century hand, I see no reason to agree with Cartellieri (n. 37 above) 343, that it applies to the Second Crusade. For anti-crusading songs in the vernacular, see Hauck, , op. cit. 4.898.

page 269 note 290 Pfeiffer, (n. 31 above) 8-10. In 1157, the General Chapter of the Cistercian Order decreed that monks ‘qui de ordine exeunt ita ut Jerusolymam eant vel aliam peregrinationem aliorsum faciant … sine omni personarum acceptione de domibus propriis amoti, mittantur in alias domos ordinis perpetuo numquam reversuri,’ ibid. 8. That Cistercian monks in fact joined the Second Crusade does not affect the general validity of this order, which was fully in accord with medieval crusading theory. Urban II forbade monks’ joining the First Crusade without the permission of their abbots (JL 5670); cf. Schlée, (n. 234 above) 48–9; Flahiff, 176-7; and Bridrey, (n. 161 above) 50-1, who says that, ‘quant aux moines, ils ne pourront jamais faire le vœu de croisade sans autorisation spéciale,’ 51; and see also the letter of Innocent III to the Bishop of Troyes, PL 214.58-61, no. 69.

page 276 note 324 See Janauschek, (n. 177 above) I 287f. Winter, Franz, Die Cistercienser des nordöstlichen Deutschlands 1 (Gotha 1868) 56, says: ‘Jener verunglückte Kreuzzug von 1147 hat dem heiligen Bernard in den Augen der Sachsen seinen Heiligenschein genommen und seinem Orden unter ihnen einen mehr als zwanzigjährigen Stillstand auferlegt.’ But this is too extreme, cf. Pfeiffer 145. Certainly 1147 was the peak year, after which there was a sharp reduction in the number of new houses; but the falling off in the middle and late 1150’s was presumably largely owing to the death of St. Bernard and to the stringent restriction on the foundation of new abbeys enacted by the General Chapter in 1152: see Statuta capitulorum generalium ordinis Cisterciensis , ed. Canivez, J.-M., I (Bibliothèque de la Revue d’histoire ecclésiastique 9; Louvain 1933) 45.

Eugene's objections to the confirmation of Wibald were presumably based upon (a) the dubious canonicity of the election, against which the deposed Abbot Henry of Nordheim had already appealed to Rome, and (b) Wibald's pluralism: he was already Abbot of Stavelot and Malmedy and ex-Abbot of Monte Cassino. See Mann, 32; and Bastin, 36f., who says that ‘Eugène III fut d'ailleurs bientôt rassuré sur la régularité de l'élection. Une délégation de moines corbiens lui en porta la preuve à Meaux et il prit dès lors l'abbaye et son supérieur sous sa protection spéciale,’ 42.
