(p.29) Chapter One The Unrepentant Crusader: The Figure of the Separated Heart
The Subject of Crusade

Marisa Galvez

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the figure of the separated heart in the crusade lyrics of the Châtelain d'Arras and Thibaut de Champagne. It reads these works that poetically articulate ambivalence about crusade against homiletic literature and sermons by Bernard of Clairvaux, Innocent III, Maurice of Sully, and others that emphasize the repentance, confession, and sincere love of a crusader with the "right intention." It demonstrates how the crusader-poet develops his own sincere voice and intention of crusade through devotion to the lady. This professional voice of erotic self-constraint, as opposed to the confessional voice, inspires him for crusade without obliging him to repent.

Keywords:   Châtelain d'Arras, Thibaut de Champagne, Bernard of Clairvaux, Maurice of Sully, confession, right intention, memory, profession, heart, crusader-poet
