The chroniclers of the First Crusade were not neutral observers, but involved spectators with their own ideologies and concerns. Jean Flori's twenty-five-year statistical research reveals their writings as works of propaganda that interpret facts according to specifics agendas. Flori likewise puts forwards new dating as well as hierarchical relations between the different chronicles. This historiographical revolution provides a much-needed new approach to one of the most important events of the Middle Ages. French text.
