A Crusader’s Things and the Material Outremer: The Account-Inventory of Eudes of Never, Acre 1266: An Edition, Translation and Commentary (Book)
Title: A Crusader’s Things and the Material Outremer: The Account-Inventory of Eudes of Never, Acre 1266: An Edition, Translation and Commentary
Author: Laura K. Morreale
Author: Anne E. Lester
Abstract: This book is a reconstruction and close reading of an Account-Inventory drawn up in 1266 for Count Eudes of Nevers, a crusading count who died in Acre during the period of the crusades. The count left behind a vast store of objects, especially luxury textiles, clothing, jewels and more all of which were given away and sold. Eudes of Nevers and his contemporaries were furthermore the subject of a series of crusader poems written between 1255 and 1275 by the famed French vernacular poet Rutebeuf. This volume offers a new edition, translation and commentary of these sources and a long interpretative essay that makes sense of the objects, their owner, and the world of the medieval Outremer.
